The Candle Labyrinth in the Night of the Churches at Rödelsee (Germany) 2011

On Saturday 29th of October, 2011 the two parishes of Rödelsee celebrated the night of the churches under the motto “open doors, open hearts, open churches” as an ecumenical event.

One program point was the candle labyrinth on the place of Schloss Crailsheim. People were invited to walk the labyrinth from the beginning of the darkness at 18 o’clock until midnight.

I contributed the layout and have chosen the type Baltic Wheel. Together with active and “old” boy scouts we have put up about 300 light bowls. A small coal fire was burning in the centre and each who liked to do, was invited to throw some grains of  incense into the glow.

The labyrinth had 4 circuits with an additional short path, the path width was 1 m, the middle had 4 m of diameter, the whole diameter amounted to 12 m, the lines were 122 m long and the way to the middle had 100 m.
