A labyrinth is a patterned path, most often circular in form, used as a walking meditation or spiritual practice. A labyrinth’s walkway is arranged in such a way that the participant moves back and forth across the circular form through a series of curves, ending at the labyrinths’ heart or center.

We will meet in the Gathering Space at church, talk about labyrinths and then head over to the Mercy Center on Bopp Road to walk their outdoor labyrinth.
A study of Robert Williamson Jr.’s The Forgotten Books of the Bible: Recovering the Five Scrolls for Today (c. 2018). The O.T. books covered are The Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther. The book of Ruth will be studied October 17 and November 7. All are welcome to join the group at any time.
