What is a labyrinth?      

Posted by Armstrong, With 0 Comments, Category: Blog,

The labyrinth is a walking meditation, a path of prayer and an ancient tool to encounter the Spirit. It has only one path that leads from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center. There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. Unlike a maze where you lose your way, the labyrinth is a spiritual tool that can help you find your way.

There is no right way or wrong way to walk a labyrinth. Use the labyrinth in any way that meets what you need while being respectful of others walking. You may go directly to the center to pray quietly – whatever meets your needs.

There is a labyrinth set up in the Worship Center and available for persons to use.  To prepare, you may want to sit quietly to reflect before walking the labyrinth. Some people come with questions, others just to slow down and take time out from a busy life. Some come to find strength to take the next step. Many come during times of grief and loss. We are providing a reflection page as a resource on the theme of journey.

Children enjoy the labyrinth and we ask that parents supervise their young children so all may enjoy the meditative aspects of the walk.
