Spiritual Practices: Labyrinth

What is a labyrinth?

It is a path for prayer that leads from yearning towards joy, meaning, hope, and peace.

While it can be used for personal explorations,

it also invites communal participation.

What is planted here flowers in the gardens of our lives.

Whether perplexed, overjoyed, confused, hopeful,

hurt, distraught, happy, or simply curious,

as we pray, God meets us here.

It is not unusual to emerge from the labyrinth inspired,

encouraged, grateful, and clearer about next steps.

-Jill K. H. Geoffrian and Cheryl Felicia Dudley from

Christian Prayer and Labyrinths: Pathways to Faith, Hope and Love.


As you go in, release the cares and concerns which distract you from God. When you reach the center, linger there. The center is a place of prayer and meditation where we receive clarity about our lives. As we [journey] out on the same path that brought us in, we are granted power to act.



Exiting Prayer: Eternal God, you call us to ventures of which we cannot see the ending by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with courage, not knowing where we go but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
