Happiness in life flows from and is dependent upon the spiritual condition of the heart. Nurturing a vibrant spiritual life comes through practices such as prayer, reflection on Scripture, spiritual direction, and worship, to name a few. All of this occurs within the context of God’s enabling grace. We offer a variety of such practices for you to nurture your spirit.

The Stiffler Labyrinth
Please note: The labyrinth is available for private walks by appointment only. Please contact Bob Kos at email@example.com to schedule a time for your household to walk.
Our Stiffler Labyrinth (dedicated in September 2015) is 36 feet in diameter and is an 11-circuit unicursal pattern following the design found on the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France, which dates to 1201–1207.
A spiritual tool dating back to ancient times, a labyrinth offers a pathway of prayer and a walking meditation. When walking the labyrinth, be open to whatever may happen since your expectation may get in the way of your experience. Each walk is different— just as each person’s walk differs from those of others.
