On Monday, May 24th at 5:30 p.m. the Centering Prayer group will take a field trip to Second Presbyterian Church to walk their prayer labyrinth. The labyrinth is an ancient form of contemplative prayer that engages the whole body of the participant.
Walking the labyrinth is a three part prayer – purgation, or a letting go of thoughts and distractions; illumination – listening for a word or insight from God; and lastly Union – joining God by living in response to the word received. Unlike a maze, the labyrinth has only a single path so there are no tricks or dead ends.
The path winds throughout ad becomes a mirror for where we are in our lives. It touches our sorrows and releases our joys. This is an opportunity to rediscover a long-forgotten spiritual tool used for deepening ones prayer life.
There will be a brief introduction to the labyrinth given at the beginning, and then an opportunity to share and discuss your experience at the end. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
