Labyrinth as a Metaphor for Life’s Journey

There will be a labyrinth available at the church the weekend of the Lenten Retreat.

Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You’re on a path….exactly where you’re meant to be right now. And from here you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, healing, courage, beauty, wisdom, power, dignity and love. –Caroline Adams

A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. At its most basic level, the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self where the image of God dwells, and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are in the context of all creation.
