Walking the labyrinth is a centuries-old meditation or prayer practice.
By walking a pathway in prayer and meditation, we can focus our thoughts,
listen for the Divine, seek comfort, or spark our creativity.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 8am-8pm
From March 26-30 (Holy Week), we will have a prayer labyrinth available at Maplewood Presbyterian from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The labyrinth will be in the sanctuary Monday through Wednesday, and in the lounge on Thursday and Friday morning until noon.
While this may not be familiar to many of us, walking the labyrinth is a centuries-old meditation or prayer practice. By walking a pathway in prayer and meditation, we can focus our thoughts on hearing God’s voice, feeling God’s presence, sparking our creativity, or relinquishing and receiving.
We can walk a labyrinth just to see what insights God may give us, or to gain a resolution for a problem, or for many other reasons. There is no “right” way to do this, no set time. You can stop anywhere along the way to rest or to explore insights further.
Because there will be some who are unfamiliar with this practice, we will have guidelines available to help you get started, as well as volunteers to answer questions. We will have supplies if you want to jot notes and chairs to sit in if you get tired along the way.
We hope you will come and explore this new opportunity to expand our awareness of God’s presence in our lives. Again, Holy Week, March 26-30, 8:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
Oh, and the difference between a labyrinth and a maze? A maze has many paths to follow, some of which lead nowhere. A labyrinth has only one path, and leads to our Center.
