December brings us many reasons to celebrate, among them the Spiral Garden.
A spiral path made of evergreen boughs with a candle set on a stump in the center and golden stars along the pathway. We are all on a journey to bring our gifts and our inner light into our community to share with others.
We enter into a dark room to soft music from the lyre. After soft singing, the light in the center is lit, then one by one the older children are given an apple with a candle to walk to the center of the spiral and light their candle, then set it on a gold star on the return path from the center. After all have set their candles on the path, the room has brightened with a light from each of us.
As we journey through our lives, we touch many with our lights and warm many with our hearts.
Silence follows… all leave quietly to go home for gentle reflection.
