A labyrinth is a spiritual tool for meditation or prayer with a single path winding into the center and out again. There is no “religious dogma” associated with the labyrinth. The circle the labyrinth forms symbolizes wholeness and unity, inviting playful interaction and soulful reflection. Whether used for meditation, prayer or quiet moments, the circular nature of the labyrinth reminds us that life is a constant journey, rather than a destination. Come walk and find “health and peace within…”
7-circuit Community Labyrinth Complete at First Presbyterian Church
The dedication for the outdoor labyrinth at FPC was held Sunday, July 2015. All are welcome to walk this outdoor labyrinth as your schedule permits! To find the labyrinth, just park at the far end of the main parking lot and you will see a labyrinth sign. There is a path that goes down to the labyrinth that is located behind the church. The labyrinth is also accessible from the walking path that runs behind the church.
