Labyrinth Inside St. Paul’s
Labyrinth Inside St. Paul’s December 7
plus Christmas Week
The movable Labyrinth at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church will be set up indoors for prayer and meditation from 1:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, December 7. It will be in the church’s Activity Center on the second floor of the Sanctuary Building.
Found in many religious traditions in various forms around the world, the labyrinth is an archetype of the journey of a spiritual seeker, a symbol of unity and wholeness.
St. Paul’s Labyrinth is available usually from 1:30 to 7 p.m. the first Thursday of every month. (Due to the first day of 2009 being on a Thursday, that month the Labyrinth will be available on January 8.) St. Paul’s Labyrinth also is an integral part of spiritual retreats at the church and the experiences of Advent and Holy Week. This year during Advent, the Labyrinth will be available from 2:30 p.m. Saturday, December 20, until after the 9 p.m. Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on December 24.
At 5501 Main Street, St. Paul’s is on the corner of Main and Binz/Bissonnet, across from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The church is within one block of both Museum District MetroRail stops, and free parking is available in two lots behind the church on Fannin Street. The website is www.stpaulshouston.org.
