JUNE SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Our monthly spiritual practice activities are creative ways to connect to God, and can help with the hectic day to day stress of schedules and dominance of technology. May these 'practices' bring balance, as you and your family cultivate new ways to engage with God and each other. 

LABYRINTH

Walking a labyrinth is another spiritual practice that can be done by people of all ages. Different from a maze where one can get lost, the purpose of the labyrinth path is to walk it with intention.  The path is symbolic of a spiritual journey.


Try walking the Town Green in Guilford.  You can follow the form of the cross or walk the X’s.  Generally a person walks slowly and meditates on a spiritual question or prayer and then spends some time in the center before starting to retrace their steps back out of the labyrinth.
