Our Prayer Labyrinth
What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is not a maze. In a labyrinth there is a clear path in and out. In the Middle Ages the labyrinths were used as a way for people to participate in a pilgrimage without the expense or time required in actually going to another place. Labyrinths were created on the floors of cathedrals to help draw people into meditation.
The labyrinth at Shenendehowa United Methodist Church is intended for Christian prayer and meditation. It was an Eagle Scout project, created by Joe Thayer, and dedicated to the church at his Eagle ceremony August 9, 2020.
All are welcome to use the Labyrinth
Ask God a question as you enter the path. Then, as you walk slowly through the twists and turns, listen for an answer. Let your steps and your silence invite the presence and guidance of God.
