Spiritual Life

Labyrinth walking is a spiritual discipline that involves focused motion and prayer or meditation. St. Luke’s offers three labyrinths:
  • An eight-circuit Chartres style labyrinth painted on the floor of N103/104 (check schedule by door for availability)
  • An 84-foot day-lily and mulch 11-circuit Chartres style labyrinth located north of Luke’s Lodge
  • An 11-circuit canvas Chartres style portable labyrinth
The outdoor labyrinth blooms gloriously in late June. Be a part of this gift to our congregation and the wider community by volunteering to weed a small section twice a month in the spring and summer when your schedule permits. Email Betty Brandt to volunteer.

Spiritual Direction, also known as Spiritual Companionship, is the ancient practice of the world's major religions. In this practice, a relationship between a trained Spiritual Director (mentor) and another person (directee) who desires to grow in union with God is developed through regular meetings. During this time, there will be conversations about ways God may be touching your life. This is not psychotherapy or counseling as they deal with emotional suffering, pain or trauma in episodic meetings, whereas Spiritual Direction deals with ongoing meetings for the inexperienced person to grow in relationship with the divine.

Here is a list of local Spiritual Directors and their contact information. 

This ministry provides "hands-on" healing sessions for those experiencing physical, emotional, spiritual pain or stress.
The goal of contemplation is to be open to God at a deep soul level.
