Next in our Lenten "Tools for Transformation Series"
Walking the Labyrinth
week in our Sunday Lenten Series, Beth Jahncke will be leading us in
the practice of walking the Labyrinth. Here is her invitation:
series about tools for transformation, there 's walking the labyrinth. A
labyrinth is a meandering path that travels from the outer edge
around and turning and around again and again til one arrives
at the center. There is only one path to follow. It is yet
another way to quiet ourselves in order to listen to God and/or know
God's Presence. This is a prayer/tool that's even more active because it
involves the movement of your body as you follow the path. Walking
the labyrinth can be great for those of us with 'party-line' internal
diologue, those of us who like to control, and those looking for
peace. It's another way God opens His arms to us.
I'll be talking a
little about its history, the different types of labyrinths, its uses
and afew stories and pictures. Then we'll walk our own labyrinth at
church. So with this in mind, please wear flat shoes and comfortable
warm clothing. Bring a journal."
