Workshop to Make Finger Labyrinths Kicks Off Lenten Creativity and Reflection
Creative spirits of all ages enjoyed making finger labyrinths following worship on Feb. 26 to kick off Lenten meditations and reflections. These labyrinths are a great resource in the winter months when our outdoor labyrinth is covered in snow. A labyrinth is meant to be a path of peace, a tool for enhancing the spiritual lives and practices of those who walk it (or in the case of finger labyrinths, those who trace it). Learn more about labyrinths HERE!
