Labyrinths – Coming to a Town Near You

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

LabyrinthsYou may not have one at your church yet, but one thing is for sure – labyrinths are growing in popularity. A google search shows 116,000 web pages on labyrinths in the spring of 2004. A year later that number climbed to over 300,000. Today, that number is over 1,300,000. While this is certainly not a scientific method of research, it does show the tremendous increase in labyrinth use.

While we would expect New Age practices to increase in the secular realm, it is alarming to see them become part of Christendom. A growing number of Christian organizations are now adhering to the labyrinth practice. Below is a list of groups and denominations that have incorporated labyrinths into their ministries:
