BOONSBORO - The ancient Christian practice of navigating through a labyrinth as a sacred walk to help people reflect on their lives will be available at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Sunday, March 5, from 7 a.m. to noon. Designed to help create order out of chaos and draw people closer to God, a portable version of a labyrinth painted on a large canvas is spread on the floor of the Parish Hall at 18311 Lappans Road. The most famous Christian labyrinth is found in the Cathedral of Chartres in France.

HAGERSTOWN -- As Michael Holland walked the outdoor Cretan labyrinth at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown Sunday afternoon, he paused to read the plaque affixed to a large flat stone at its center. That plaque expresses in words the impact the late Sharon Rucker made on the growth and health of the church she loved so dearly. She died in May 2008 at the age 58. Even the stone that holds the plaque is a tribute to Rucker and her beloved congregation. It was the bottom step of the church's former location on North Potomac Street, saved 12 years ago during the move to 13245 Cearfoss Pike.

HAGERSTOWN karenh@herald-mail.com With hands clasped behind her blue denim dress, Diana Foley studied her stockinged feet Sunday as she turned serpentine loops across the floor of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown. Services for the day had ended, but the melodic music in the background and the purple pattern beneath Foley's feet begged reverence and quiet. Every month, the church offers people of all religious backgrounds the chance to bare their souls - and their feet - in contemplation as they trace the path of a labyrinth.

In this day and age, there are no limitations to spiritual quests. It is acknowledged that everyone's metaphysical journey will be individual. For some, meditation is key to spirituality. For Diana Foley, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown, walking a labyrinth can be a great canvas for a meditative mindset. A labyrinth is similar to a maze, but different. A maze has many dead ends and alternate courses to challenge a person's intellect. In a labyrinth, there is one path to the center.
