A Prayer Labyrinth for Cokes is Coming!  Cokes Chapel is beginning a new opportunity for developing a prayer life that we want you to know about! This interest came from the many discussions in our recent Vision process.  By God’s design, the visual interest was companioned with the interest of one of our youth, Jackson Smith.  Jackson will be pursuing the construction of our prayer labyrinth as an Eagle Scout project.

 
 

 

What is a Prayer Labyrinth and What is it Not?  A prayer labyrinth is a path which leads, by a circuitous route, to the center of a design and back out again. A labyrinth’s route has only a single path. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth is designed for ease of navigation, and it is impossible to get lost within one. A labyrinth is not a maze!
 
A prayer labyrinth facilitates prayer, meditation, and opportunities for spiritual growth. Labyrinths have a long history in many cultures spanning at least 3,500 years.  These were used by different cultures for worship, dance and even in Scandinavia as traps for trolls to keep fishermen safe.
 
Our Prayer Labyrinth follows the tradition that arose out of the Middle Ages as Christians sought ways to connect with God. Prayer Labyrinths have been used in Catholic Churches for centuries. They can be set as indoor or outdoor walks.  Our contemporary Christian use has seen a resurgence of labyrinths as we are finding that its history has offered a meaningful way to pray.
 
Cokes Chapel will be offering this prayer labyrinth for both the members and the community as a way to have individual space to pray, to find sacred meaning in the walking in a pattern which releases the mind to meditate and reflect. Our prayer labyrinth will be a unique and meaningful addition to our offerings in order to grow in faith and life.  Look for more to come each week in your announcements!

Best! Stories from Luke that offer Jesus Best teachings through August 11

Delve into the book of Luke this summer to hear some great advice from the Master.  Luke’s stories give concrete instruction as he answers questions from learned scholars, disciples and people in the crowd.  Don’t you have questions?  Join with this varied audience to listen, reflect and learn what Jesus offers on how to live the Best life!
 


Disciple Moment:
The infallibility and inerrancy of biblical teaching does not, however, guarantee the infallibility and inerrancy of any interpretation or interpreter of that teaching; nor does the recognition of its qualities as the Word of God in any way prejudge the issue as to what Scripture does, in fact, assert. This can be determined only by careful Bible study.
J. I. Packer

Disciple Live! We have newly trained facilitators eager to start one of the most well known and loved Bible Studies this fall! 
 
Disciple 1 is the entryway course to all studies. We will follow the school year, with breaks for holidays, and complete in the spring. Following Disciple 1 will be Disciple 2, 3 & 4, Jesus in the Gospels and Christian Believer are all potential classes depending on your interest.  Age 16 and up welcome!  Questions?
