Distilled Theology on Stones

Several years ago, I saw this basket of meditation stones in the gift shop of Mepkin Abbey.

I'm sure they inspired me to create something similar:

I was making a quiet meditation space for our church.  Many of the elements of that space no longer exist, but we've kept the rocks on the card table.

Each week, the rocks are laid out in a different configuration.  I like to think that someone leaves inspired by their time with these words on stones.

And even if it's bored children looking for diversion during church services, that's fine too.  Who knows where this play with distilled theology on stones will lead?

(in the interest of honesty, I will say that the arrangements of these stones was done by me)
