Guided Labyrinth Walk May 27 with United Methodist


Starting this month, the last Saturday of each month means it’s Labyrinth Time. Reverend Alicia Velez Stewart of the United Methodist Church will be leading an intro to their community Labyrinth and a guided meditation and walk at 9:30 am on Saturday May 27. I have been assured that there will be no minotaurs, but possibly a cameo by a large friendly golden retriever.

I am a fan of labyrinths but mine is much simpler. In about a week, I shall give up on no-mow may, to the intense relief of my neighbors but to the despair of the bumbles, and there is nothing I like better than going round and round and up and down in circles mowing the lawn. It is in fact much like a Labyrinth, and I assure you that the meditation is quite good until a small toad jumps out in front of you and you try to release the electric mower handle before you grind it up into little bits, like those gremlins in the Cuisinart. Does anyone remember the 80s? Sigh.

Anyway, in case you don’t mow your own lawn and need a real and beautifully colorful labyrinth in which to find your center, please join Alicia at the United Methodist Church. She is one of my favorite church-y people in town because of her funny emails –she finished off her last email to me with “This event is free, open to the public, and compatible with any and all faiths or belief systems. In other words: I don’t get all Jesus on people.” This is my kind of religion.

Saturday, May 27, 9:30 am, dress for the weather. UMC is located at 377 North Avenue.
