Early morning light and dawn

Yesterday I got to work very early and the lights in the chapel were already on. We were about to walk in the labyrinth of the peace, a version of the banner which is on the outside of the building for the UN year of reconciliation.
For many of us it was our first time back in the chapel since the death of our friend Suzanne. Arriving as dawn was breaking, it helped to see the lights in the chapel on to welcome people in from the outside. It was still hard to prepare a service she had been part of planning and to so keenly feel her absence.
So we prayed for peace, and we walked in the labyrinth and it spoke to us too of walking through life and trying to find meaning ... and muchmore besides.
