Walk a Labyrinth Ascension Episcopal Church 12:30, 2, & 3 pm Walking a labyrinth is a form of personal mediation and devotion. Serving Sizes Like a pilgrimage from the outer to the center, Barbara Brown Taylor says the labyrinth has “switchback and detours” and “the path goes nowhere.” In fact, “the journey is the point. The walking is the thing.” Groups will head down Arlington Loop to walk Ascension’s outdoor labyrinth. Meet at the double glass doors. Faith & Film Parlor 1:30 pm Come pull up a seat to view the 2007 film, Lars and The Real Girl.
