In 2008, a gift by the family of Robert W. Fuller enabled an indoor labyrinth to be installed in Bodwell Hall for use whenever the church is open.
What is a labyrinth?
A labyrinth is not a maze. There are no dead ends, no wrong turns, simply one path to the center and back out. A labyrinth is a metaphor for our spiritual journey through life, with the single circuitous path symbolizing wholeness and unity.
How to walk a Labyrinth
Many envision the walk as a threefold path:
1. Journeying In to the center, quieting or emptying yourself, letting go of the details of everyday life, struggling with a life challenge.
2. Resting in the Center meditating, praying or simply being open to receive whatever gift or insight may be present.
3. Journeying Out from the center may be experienced by some as awareness of a deep connection or communion with God. Others may feel centered, peaceful or renewed to journey back into challenges in their life and the world. (Adapted from Robert Ferre’ of Labyrinth Enterprises)
