Today is Ash Wednesday. A day to remember that one day life ends and we turn to dust again. This is a precious and solemn day that invites letting go of the things that are unimportant, entering into the mystery that lies at the heart of existence and turning our hearts to love. This mirrors the three-fold path that lies at the heart of meditative practice: renunciation, illumination and union. Prayer labyrinths allow us to walk this path and today I visited the one set in a Quiet Garden on the edge of the city centre in Peterborough. The garden belongs to the Quaker Meeting House but is open as a Small Pilgrim Place to those who wish to commune with nature and God. My mind and heart eventually fell into rhythm with my feet as these words came to life within me: Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return. Turn away from sin and be faithful to Christ.
