|The gorgeous colors of Garden two.|
After years of dreaming, months of planning, and weeks of installation,
the Sacred Path and Prayer Gardens officially
opened on Sunday, October 23, 2011 on the property of
Living Word Community Church.
Each season there is a new devotional guide available with the hope of assisting you in a meaningful prayer experience.
You can get a copy from in the coffee bar lobby, in a stand beside the entrance.
Come, rest and be still before the Lord. This rustic, half-mile mulch path meanders peacefully around the front perimeter of Living Word's property, weaving in-and-out of pine and maple trees and along fields of corn. There are five beautifully landscaped prayer gardens along this path, each having a sign post featuring a thoughtful quote or scripture for reflection and contemplation. Bring your journals and spend time with God in His creation and receive a little rest for you soul. Or simply take a quiet walk in His presence.
The Sacred Path's entrance is near the Belle Road driveway. It is a "point-to-point" path, meaning it does not loop. It ends near the Cape Horn driveway. You may find parking in the front of the church near the carport is best. That is pretty much half way between the path entrance and the exit. There are certainly not hard-fast rules about which place to enter the path, so be creative and begin where you feel lead. There are no lights on the path so please use it from dawn to dusk.
We'd love to hear your feedback about your experience with this Sacred Path and Prayer Gardens. You can email deAnn or leave a comment on the original blog post.
May you have a beautiful encounter with God as you walk the Sacred Path.
grace and peace,
