Walking a labyrinth is a form of meditation and prayer. It is a symbol of wholeness. It is a single path to the center, and a single path out. It is a metaphor for life’s journey to our own center and back again.
A traditional labyrinth is composed of a circle and a spiral around the heart of that circle. The image of a labyrinth is one of the oldest known man-man symbols which goes back thousands of years. It has been found on cave walls, clay tablets, coins, vases across cultures, and geography, and time.
St. James offers the opportunity to walk the labyrinth during certain seasons of the church.
