Valley’s labyrinth is open year round and all are welcome.
A labyrinth is a walking tool for prayer and meditation for those seeking God, consisting of a winding path that begins at the outside and leads to a central place and then out again by the same path. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has no blind alleys or dead ends. It is not a puzzle to be solved. Instead, one simply walks in trust, receptive to what the Spirit may be inviting us to recognize, release or discover.
As a spiritual exercise, walking the labyrinth is a way to acknowledge that in our life with God, we are indeed on a journey. The action of walking stills our thoughts allowing space for the Holy amid the noise, worries, task lists and congestion of daily life.
Be open and notice what comes. Welcome God and walk as you are led. Submerge yourself in the experience and enjoy the center. Why hurry away? Let God know your heart and mind. All are welcome.
Valley’s labyrinth was built by our Valley member, Alex Gillett, for his Eagle Scout Project and given by the Tripet Family. It was dedicated on Sunday, September 8, 2013.
