Since at least 2002, Women of the ELCA has included a portable labyrinth at its triennial gatherings. We’re planning to do so again next summer when we assemble for the Eleventh Triennial Gathering in Phoenix.
Are you new to labyrinths? You might enjoy reading some of the history of this art form and how, since the Middle Ages, Christians have used labyrinths. Today many Christians use a labyrinth as a quiet place for listening and prayer. Many Lutheran congregations have installed labyrinths, either inside or outside.
Has a labyrinth become an important part of your prayer life? Have you built one in your backyard? (That’s a not-so-secret desire of mine!)
This message is an excerpt from a Women of the ELCA blog by Linda Post Bushkofsky. Today is World Labyrinth Day. Will you walk a labyrinth today with your fingers or otherwise?
