Dedication of Campus Memorial Sculpture & Sacred Space

October 21, 2021

For years, we at the Campus Christian Center have had the dream of developing this area into a dedicated Sacred Space for our campus community.  We started with the labyrinth.  Why a labyrinth?  Because it’s an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness and it has been used as a sacred tool for meditation, prayer, and spiritual growth in various cultures around the world for more than 4000 years.   The labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.  It invites a person to embark on their own spiritual journey, regardless of religion or no religion.  Therefore, it is an assessable spiritual tool for all people.  We are delighted that we are able to provide this labyrinth for students, faculty, staff, our children, and our local community members to use as a spiritual tool for prayer, stress relief, meditation, and reflection.  We are grateful to the good people at Facilities Management, especially Jordan Kelly, who facilitated its construction.
