Thanks to generous contributions of members, cardboard and newspaper are NO LONGER needed – to use as a weed guard. Thanks so much for helping us save funds and energy by letting us reuse cardboard boxes.


Please bring water (for self), gloves, and your favorite gardening tools – shovels, rakes, loppers, picks/maddocks, pitchforks, wheelbarrows, chainsaws. Kids are also welcome =)

All fitness levels weclome! What to expect: breaking down cardboard boxes,  shoveling stone dust, and pushing wheel-barrows full of rocks.  Please wear outdoor shoes and bring outdoor gloves.   If you can only carry down one rock we’d love your help.



A Pattern With A Purpose

Gracefield Labyrinth

Gracefield Labyrinth, Model for UUCA's Labyrinth

What is a Labyrinth? Often found in sacred spaces and places of worship, labyrinths provide a pleasant for walking meditation or prayer.   Unlike mazes labyrinth’s are unicursal – there is only one way in and one way out.  You can not get lost in a labyrinth.  Thinking is not required to walk a labyrinth. At the same time, one must remain alert to stay on the path. This combination of reduced mental activity and heightened awareness makes the labyrinth ideal for walking meditation or prayer.

A Labyrinth walk is like life’s journey.  There is not wrong way to walk the labyrinth.   Some race on ahead, some follow behind some go in there own way and time.  Some will only try it if they have a partner.  Some will be dwelling on thinking of the future or past, or trying to stay in the present.  Some will walk it embracing sorrow or joys.  Often people will contemplate a question walking in and gain a new insight by the time they walk out.

The UUCA labyrinth is a living work in progress.  Original funding was raised by Full Circle from 2001-2003, and by direct donations for this project to the UUCA church.  If you are interested in it’s workshops or helping with maintenance please contact Kay.

Thanks to generous contributions of members, cardboard boxes (large) and newspaper are NO LONGER needed – to block weeds for the labyrinth. Thanks so much for helping us save funds by letting us reuse cardboard boxes.
