On Good Friday, 2011 Covenant dedicated a Reconciliation Labyrinth. The labyrinth, the seventh of it’s kind in the United States, was built using a copyright design by Clare Wilson from South Africa.
Since that initial labyrinth installation, Covenant has continued to explore the labyrinth journey, and now has the only “Labyrinth Park” in the United States, with five labyrinths for walking meditation and prayer.

Everyone is invited to come journey together
There is no wrong way to walk a labyrinth but many may find it helful to envision the walk as a threefold path:
Journey in the walk to to the center, quieting or emptying yourself, letting go of the details of everyday live, struggling with a life challenge.
Journey up (Resting in the Center) time spent in the center meditation, praying or simply being of open mind and heart to receive whatever gift or insight may be present.
Journey out the walk from the center may be experienced as awareness of a deep connection or communion with God, the Holy Spirit, or with Sacred energy at work in the world. Others may feel centered, peaceful or renewed to journey back into challenges in their life and the world (Adapted from Robert Ferre’ of Labyrinth Enterprises)
Below, members of our Wednesday centering prayer group walk a labyrinth offsite as a communal prayer practice.
