All Souls’ Labyrinth Walk Tonight

From Rev. Bailey’s announcement:

Tonight — On Thursday evening, November 2, St. Andrew’s will host an All Souls’ Labyrinth Walk in Pleasants Park. Please feel free to stop by any time between 5:30 pm and 7 pm. It is an invitation to walk in quiet remembrance of and thanksgiving for the ancestors who have gone before us to light the way.

Walking a labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative practices for prayer and pilgrimage found in faith traditions around the world. Labyrinths may have been in existence as early as 3,500 to 4,500 BCE.

The labyrinth will be set up from 5:30 to 7 for those who would like to walk it, and we will have hot chocolate, sweet tea, and cookies for those who join us.

Good evening
