The Labyrinth

We at First Presbyterian of Searcy invite you
to consider this Labyrinth yours, as it is ours, and pray that is blesses
you as it has blessed us.  
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to
wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a
meandering but purposeful path.  The Labyrinth represents a journey
to our own center and back again out into the world.  Labyrinths have long
been used as meditation and prayer tools.  A Labyrinth is an archetype
with which we can have a direct experience.  We can walk it.
It is a metaphor for life's journey.  It is a symbol that creates a
sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to "That Which Is
Within."  The Christian life is often described as as a
pilgrimage or journey with God, a journey in which we can grow closer in
relationship with God, and in turn, closer to others.  In life, as in the
Labyrinth, we do not know where the path will take us.  We do not foresee
the twists and turns that the future holds, but we know that the path will
eventually arrive at the center, God. Sometimes the path leads inward toward the ultimate goal, only the lead
outward again.  We meet others along the path - some we meet face-to-face
stepping aside to let them pass; some catch up to us and pass us from behind;
others we pass along the way.

 

Personal Experiences at the Labyrinth at Presbyterian Park: 

"Sometimes
the path leads close to the center, sometimes to the outside edges; but always,
there is a center.  If you keep walking the path, you find yourself there.
Is there any more apt metaphor for life? Sometimes God seems near, sometimes
distant; but always, he is there. If you keep walking life's path, you will
find him; or rather, be found by him."

-Peggy K.
