JEFFERSONVILLE

Advent program coming to church

An Advent on three consecutive Thursdays at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 321 E. Market St., Jeffersonville is offering to the community an introduction to the spiritual practice and meditative tool of the labyrinth.

A labyrinth is a path which leads to the center and which has many turns. Unlike a maze, there are no dead-ends or wrong turns. A labyrinth is active — it is slowly and prayerfully walking the path. For some it can be a time of meditation; others find it a time of centering, of calm and quiet and prayer. This centering is a way to receive God more deeply into our hearts and lives.

On Thursdays Dec. 6, 13 and 20, the public is invited to walk a sacred path at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church from 6:30 to 8 p.m. At 6:30 on those evenings, in St. Paul’s parish hall, Nancy Woodworth-Hill, co-pastor of St. Paul’s, will introduce the labyrinth (a walking meditation device) and various ways it can be engaged. From 7 to 8 p.m., participants will be able to walk/pray the labyrinth. For more information call 812-282-1108.
