    Walk the Prayer Labyrinth on Ash Wednesday. The labyrinth will be in Asbury Hall all day, beginning after the first service (see above). It is a personal and spiritual experience as you worship and praise God, moving toward the center of the labyrinth with God and walking back out toward the world, praying for others.
