The Labyrinth

Walking the Labyrinth

The Labyrinth at New Hope is open every first Sunday of the month from 12-3pm.  You may also contact Pastor Candace Worth if you have a specific event or a group that would like to walk the labyrinth at another time.

What Is a Labyrinth?

Labyrinths are found in some form in nearly every ancient culture.  There are the famous ones like the one in which the Minotaur was imprisoned on the Ilse of Crete or the one in Notre Dame Cathedral.  Frequently the term labyrinth and maze are used interchangeably.  However, there is one significant difference: a maze's path is unclear with many false paths, whereas a labyrinth has only one path that is easy to follow.  The focus is on the journey, not a mastery of the puzzle.  The one pictured above uses a design that is found throughout the world and is seen as representing a universal ancient symbolism for the divine.
