The possibility of building a church labyrinth is being explored.
Please let us know if you might be interested in joining our very informal group discussing a potential labyrinth. Our Labyrinth Group is already doing things like visiting other church labyrinths for ideas. Email [email protected].
Labyrinth Walking Is a Spiritual Practice Spirituality requires attention, hence there is a category of activities known as spiritual practices. Walking a labyrinth is such a practice. In this way, the labyrinth makes spirituality accessible to everyone. It is a form of personal meditation and devotion, not a piety of obedience.
The labyrinth takes us beyond our limited, conditioned personality and learning to a deeper place of awareness and revelation. In that state, we can practice being in the presence of God. We can sing, pray, or dance. While walking the labyrinth we can repeat a phrase as our mantra, such as “Lead me,” or “Be still and know I am God.” In the Old Testament, David advised Solomon to “Walk in the ways of God.” What we learn in the labyrinth we then take back into our lives.
