Walking the Prayer Labyrinth

Event Date: 
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 - 9:00am - 11:00am
The prayer labyrinth is an archetypal pattern, a "divine imprint," found in religious traditions in various forms around the world. Several European cathedrals had labyrinths which were walked by thousands of faithful Christians as a symbolic way of making a pilgrimage to the Holy City, Jerusalem. In recent years, walking a prayer labyrinth has been rediscovered as a meditative, "active" way of praying.
 
As a spiritual tool, the prayer labyrinth can be used as a path of prayer, a place of release and renewal, a time for quieting the mind, an opportunity to pray and reflect on life questions with God in silence. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has only one path; there are no tricks and no dead ends. It is designed to quiet the mind and lead the walker by a winding route to the center, and then, by the same route, to return to the exit.
The labyrinth will be available during these times:
          July 18: 9-11am and 5-7:00pm
The labyrinth can also be made available by appointment through the church office. Please honor this as a quiet space during the open times.
