Father, be the Goal of my pilgrimage, and my Rest by the way.
— St. Augustine
Walk the Labyrinth Event October 9th, 2022, Noon to 2 p.m. Special guest Kathy Mansfield, Advanced Certified Labyrinth Trainer. The focus of the walk will be based on Kathy’s poem “Remedy for a Chaotic World.” What can we do in chaotic, stressful, contentious times, to remain connected to God, to feel His Peace? Only then are we able to go out and be “God’s Hands and feet” in the world. Lunch will be provided prior to the walk. Please sign up here so there will be enough food for all. Join us for this faith filled peaceful event.
In early 2021 our Board of Trustees approved the installation of a labyrinth on the floor of our outdoor pavilion. Installed in early March, we pray this labyrinth will serve as an invaluable tool to deepen the prayer life of our congregation and community and help us to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
A labyrinth is a geometrically designed walking path leading to and from a central point. It is not a maze; you cannot get lost. There are no dead ends. The point is not disorientation, but orientation.
Labyrinths have been used by Christians for prayer and meditation for centuries. The most famous labyrinth is in Chartres Cathedral in France. Our labyrinth is modeled after the Chartres labyrinth. For medieval Christians, walking the labyrinth was imagined to be a spiritual journey to the Holy Land. For others, it provides a metaphor for the Christian journey itself, offering time to listen, discern and respond to God as you walk its sacred path.
