Sunday 9th June Pentecost, saw the installation of a Labyrinth at Church.

Available between 5 and 6:30 pm for anyone who was interested to come along, it was used by YMOSES in the evening.

Labyrinths have been used since ancient times as symbols of the spiritual life and since medieval times as symbols of the Christian path. They were used as an alternative to costly and impractical pilgrimages for people who couldn't easily travel. The journey to the middle of the labyrinth might represent travelling to Jerusalem, or meeting God face to face or reaching the end of life.

There are various ways to use the labyrinth but the usual method is simply to follow the path to the centre, rest there a while and then slowly follow it back out. It is a method of praying using your whole body.

Our thanks to Jane Kent for organising this for us
