Webdef: Labyrinth

Lab·y·rinth /lab’ə’rinθ/ — Noun: A maze of paths or passages with symbolic or impenetrable borders, as in a garden. In Christian practice, the labyrinth leads inward to the center, then outward again, and the path itself is winding, echoing life.

Ever wonder how to walk a labyrinth?  The pilgrim walking the labyrinth often removes shoes and is invited to leave worldly thoughts behind when journeying towards the center, symbolically going deeper. Then, after a time at the center, the pilgrim is invited to carry away something of God, for the journey back into the world.  Watch our short video here.
