Walking the Labyrinth

An Ecumemical Holy Week Tradition- 23nd Anniversary

The labyrinth will be returning to Binkley during Holy Week. Following worship on March 24th we’ll ask volunteers to stay and help us move all of our chairs to the sides of the sanctuary. The labyrinth will arrive around 2 pm and volunteers from all of the sponsoring groups will be on hand to help get it laid out. You’ll be welcome to take time to walk the labyrinth throughout that week.

It will remain in the sanctuary through the Good Friday service on March 29th at noon. Then we’ll need volunteers to help us pack it away and reset
the sanctuary for Easter morning. I hope you’ll make time for this meaningful spiritual practice during Holy Week and volunteer to help if you’re available. We are grateful to host this ecumenical event annually.

Open to all. Socks or shoe coverings required. Mask welcomed. Love offering collected.

Walk Time ~30 minutes.

A Good Friday Service will take place on March 29. You may walk during the service and afterwards until 1 PM with the Labyrinth closes.

Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different faiths for spiritual centering, contemplation, and prayer. Entering the serpentine path of a labyrinth, you walk slowly while quieting your mind and focusing on a spiritual question or prayer.

You’ll find prayer stations around the perimeter which support your intentions with tangible symbols. Gentle, contemplative music will accompany you as you take this pilgrimage of the heart. You are invited to reaffirm your baptism (according to your tradition) at the baptismal pool.

Please feel free to share your reflections in the community journal.
