Labyrinth:

Dear friends,
My name is Jackson Smith.  I am a Life Scout working toward my Eagle Scout rank.  A big step in this process is the Eagle project, and I am looking for help to complete it. 

My project is building a prayer labyrinth at Cokes Chapel UMC in Sharpsburg GA.  A prayer labyrinth is a form of meditation through movement.  It is a winding path that as you get closer to the center, you get closer to God.

This prayer labyrinth will add a new worship ministry to our church and community.  It will also be registered in the National Labyrinth registry with the Labyrinth Society.  However, building the labyrinth is a large and fairly costly project.  This is where you can help.  I am seeking monetary donations to help me build it.  Any amount would be greatly appreciated, and unused money, if any, will be donated to Cokes Chapel.  Please send checks or cash to:

                                          Cokes Chapel UMC
                                          4096 Lower Fayetteville Rd
                                          Sharpsburg, GA 30277
 
Write “labyrinth” in the memo section of the check and it will go into a designated church holding account. 

I am very excited about this project because of its uniqueness and benefit to the church and the community.  Thank you so much for helping me accomplish my goal, even if it’s just by giving me your time. 

     Yours in Christ,
            Jackson Smith

P.S.  If you have an interest in labyrinths, you can find where one is located near you at labyrinthlocator.com.  It is a worldwide registry of labyrinths.
