Reflections from Laneway Labyrinth

This is some of the stuff people talked about while we debreifed the Laneway Labyrinth walk over supper on Thursday night:

  • Contrast between what's going on out the front of places (shops, hotels, restaurants, bars) and what's going on out the back. Often when we visit these places we don't think about who's working out the back, or the kind of conditions they're working in.
  • The immense amount of stuff we throw out. We import all this stuff, often produced by people who don't have enough to eat, and then we chuck a lot of it out anyway!
  • A sense that God is not just in the nice, safe, well-lit places that our society celebrates, but also in the dark, dirty places where our society hides it's less attractive aspects.
  • We don't have to go far to encounter God. God is right here.
