GHR 2021 Q2: Grace/Kindness

We can all use some kindness.

I can just hear someone yelling, “You can say that again!”

We can all use some kindness.

It seems that Grace in action is almost always kind. It’s that simple. And yet, that profound. I hope, as we keep moving through our Covid Friendly lives we offer kindness to strangers, friends and family.

Offering a labyrinth walk is a graceful way of offering gentle care for our friends. We provide a container for their journey, discoveries and processing without any judgment. Even walking with a friend or family member (in a Covid safe way) can provide comfort.

Quote: “Do everything with gentleness, with kindness, with reverence. That is how Grace moves; that is how Love dances.” —Heather K. O’Hara

Prayer/Meditation:

Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots.
Kind words are the blossoms,
Kind deeds are the truth.
—19th century rhyme

(Kindness isn’t complicated)


Ideas for benefiting organization: Donate to your community in a way that is meaningful to you or your labyrinth group. Women’s shelter?  Food bank? Is there a friend that could use a homemade dinner? Perhaps just a random act of kindness every now and then?

Ideas for ambiance: I love the idea of painting stones with a simple labyrinth and gifting them to your labyrinth walkers. Sometimes a small token can mean so much when given with kindness. River rocks can be purchased at most craft supply stores. A permanent marker and then a coat of clear finish (optional) makes them shine.
