A Joyful Beginning: Walk The Labyrinth
----------------------------------------------
Wednesday, September 13
From 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Meetinghouse

Joyfully connect with your self, with your fellow students and with
God as we celebrate the ancient spiritual practice of walking a
labyrinth. The labyrinth ministry invites everyone, especially those
who are new to our community, to come discover this opportunity to find
joy, peace and wholeness. If you've never walked a labyrinth before,
we'll be glad to get you started. Come celebrate a joyful beginning
by walking the labyrinth!

The open labyrinth walks will continue throughout the semester on
Wednesday nights from 7:30 until 9:30 p.m. in the Meetinghouse. In
addition, special labyrinth walks will be scheduled on alternative days
and times. Watch ANTS Student E-News for details!
