The Labyrinth

At the center of our church is a labyrinth. Housed within our church is a beautiful, inlaid wood labyrinth. 

We offer our labyrinth to the community for individuals and groups to come and walk. In addition, we have a canvas labyrinth that is available for groups to use at retreats, or even on college campuses.

Throughout history, in many places and cultures, the labyrinth has appeared as a form of sacred wisdom. Its patterns are said to express an archetype in the shape of a mandala. Used to replicate the journey of the spirit one experiences as a pilgrim, the labyrinth can lead us to the prayerful inner depths of the heart. 

 

Although its origins are unknown, the labyrinth was used in Europe by medieval Christians and pilgrims to replace the longer journey to Jerusalem and the Holy Land.

 

Historically Christian pilgrims walked a symbolic spiritual journey to and through Jerusalem, following the footsteps of Jesus. By walking the labyrinth, they experienced the metaphorical journey of their lives.
