The Labyrinth is a path painted on the floor of our parish hall to invite us into kinesthetic prayer, a prayer practice of movement. We enter the labyrinth, carrying an intention, a concern, a celebration, or maybe a heavy weight we need to let go of. As we walk, twisting and turning towards the center and never getting lost, a prayer is formed by our feet.
When we enter the center of the labyrinth we are invited to release whatever it is that we carried into God’s care. Sometimes, God places a gift into our now-empty hands. Sometimes, we walk out of the Labyrinth feeling lighter and unburdened. Sometimes, we recognize that our journey in life is just like the Labyrinth, and we must have faith that God knows the way to bring us toward the center.
