Labyrinths: Moving prayer

ImageHave you or your child ever struggled to keep still long enough to have a moment of quiet prayer? Labyrinths are an ancient way to experience prayer and inner peace while engaging in physical movement. Labyrinths, with their singular path to a center point, promote focus and reflection.

Rory and I created a labyrinth for Grace that will be available during the 3rd week of Lent. Information sheets will be available for this self-guided experience.

I used instructions found on the internet to create our portable labyrinth out of canvas and duct tape. For those who are travelling, check out the Labyrinth Society’s locator. For everyday use,  you can print a portable finger labyrinth.
