The labyrinth is an ancient spiritual practice that goes back thousands of years.  Unlike a maze, there is only one way in, and one way out, as you trace a continuous path that twists and turns, finally arriving at the center.  Pilgrims have used them for centuries as tools for meditation, for discernment, and for reflecting on life.  One of the most famous labyrinths was built in the early decades of the 13th century in the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France.  It has inspired a labyrinth revival that has seen the labyrinth become a major spiritual tool all over the world.

First Presbyterian Church now has a labyrinth.  You can find it in Great Hall, and initially it will be open for you to use during our Advent Prayer and Meditation times.  We do ask that you wear the coverings for your shoes, as we remember that it is holy ground.  (Coverings will be available in Great Hall.)

There will be guides for use of the Labyrinth, including meditation suggestions to make your experience more meaningful.

All are welcome.
