This site is an invitation to you to take about 15-20 minutes out of each day of Holy Week to “walk” a labyrinth and reflect upon the way of Jesus in the final week of his life as recorded in the Jesus stories of the Bible. Each day will follow a similar pattern of a narrated video of walking to the center of a labyrinth and then another narrated video walking out. You are encouraged to take in both videos. You can do it in one sitting or do one in the morning and one in the evening. As with physically walking a labyrinth, it is not about the pace at which you go but what you experience as you journey. On each day, there will also be a printable page of that specific labyrinth path that you could trace on your own. Links to where to visit each of these labyrinths will also be provided if you would like to travel them in person.
The site is free as we want as many people to experience it as possible. However, the production of this site required the time and efforts of several people without a source of funding. If you would like to contribute to the site as an individual or if you are sharing with your congregation, it would be greatly appreciated to cover our costs. For sharing with your congregation, please consider a larger donation since it will be shared with a group.
