St. Brendan’s Labyrinth Guild is pleased to offer a new experience for the stations of the cross.
In addition to the wood-cut traditional stations of the cross in the north and south aisles, you will have the opportunity to make the stations seated. We will use the Circle of Peace™ pattern, with its fourteen turns, and St. Pope John Paul’s scriptural stations as a table top experience.
The table and chairs will be set at the back of the church, near the organ and choir. It is planned to have the table tops available between the 12:00 noon and 7:00 pm Good Friday liturgies. We hope this time frame, together with having the labyrinth available on the same floor as the liturgies (that is, not in the parish hall), will allow more of you to participate.
Pamphlets with the scriptural stations and paper labyrinths will be available for you to use at a time convenient to your schedule.
Why walk a labyrinth?
An ongoing practice of labyrinth walking can be an exciting and meaningful discipline. Labyrinth walking, whether on one’s feet or on a table top with a finger or stylus, can add to the journey of faith.
Labyrinths are walked for a variety of reasons. Examples include the following:
- Listen to God.
- Find the quiet center of one’s life.
- Facilitate calm and stillness in a hectic world.
- Celebrate joyful occasions and happenings.
- Receive insights on problems.
- Seek faithful clarity amidst life’s challenges and opportunities.
- Seek healing for emotional and/or spiritual wounds.
- Work on forgiveness.
- Commemorate significant events or holy days.
Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
