A woman lights the candle in the centre of the labyrinth to represent the big bang. As the narrator tells the story of the universe, she walks slowly out, lighting a candle at each significant event. At first the candles are far apart, but by the end they crowd together.

The congregation are invited to take a stone from the labyrinth.


The congregation contemplate the great age of the stone they have taken, and that they are part of the same story.
