Elaborate hopscotch, Chris ?
Chris: Err..not really hopscotch Frank.

This is part of a labyrinth in front of the cathedral. You walk it in the hope you can connect to the devine..
Someone spent some time on this lovely sidewalk mural!
Chris: A temporary thing Elizabeth, of which this is but a small part.

As I see you connected the devine, but did you find out of the labyrinth again?
Chris: Yes indeed I did Philine

Do you know what the significance of this is Tiff?
Chris: Yes Chad, to invite people to connect with the devine through ritual and concentration

Ginnie's Saturday colouring is better than this; they have gone over the lines.
Chris: You tell 'em!
I have never seen a pop up labyrinth before. A box of chalk and there you go.
Chris: Within a week or so it was rolled up and taken away
looks cool. What is it? Just a mural on the ground?
Chris: A labyrinth designed to get people to focus..

Outside, the West Front of the Cathedral by Cathedral Green will host a gigantic 10×10 metre prayer labyrinth, decorated with colourful artwork for people to interact with. The labyrinth will be open on Thursday, 10 May from 10:00 until 17:00; Friday, 11 May from 10:00 until 14:00; Monday, 14 May from 10:00 until 13:00; Wednesday, 16 May from 10:00 until 17:00 and Friday, 18 May from 10:00 until 14:00.

“This is not the kind of labyrinth you can get lost in”, says James Fox-Robinson, from the Diocese of Bath and Wells who created the labyrinth. “There is one way in and one way out. What the labyrinth does is help people think about prayer and praying for one another. On the way in to the centre, the idea is you pray ‘inwards’; for yourself and what God is doing in your life. On the way out you pray for your family, friends and community. I’ve had great fun making it and I hope the scale and its location will draw people in to have a look and experience it for themselves.”
Chris: Thank you Philine. I used it; it was good
Ginnie would have done a far better job of colouring this Chris
Chris: Next time then..

Well it kept James Robinson Fox out of trouble for a while.
Chris: Assume you mean James Fox-Robinson. But you are right. This project would have kept him off the streets of Wells for a number of nights

Wells is getting as innovative as Salisbury, Chris. I am pleased you used it
Chris: Indeed, thank you Lisl. This innovation only lasted a short while
Mmm - or wind up baffled?
Chris: This is but a small part of a labyrinth Tom
I would love to walk a labyrinth.
