Seeking God at the center of congregational life: A modified prayer labyrinth as context for transformative spiritual experience

Stevens, D. K.

Abstract:  The project evaluated the quality of spiritual growth experienced by a representative sample of congregants from an aging mainline congregation after a six week period of instruction about spirituality and the spiritual journey and praying in a modified prayer labyrinth. Pre-testing and post-testing, a spiritual awareness assessment, and weekly journal entries were utilized to evaluate spiritual maturity and awareness of God.  The project demonstrated that there is a need for attention to life long spiritual growth as a critical component of congregational revitalization, and that long time members of such congregations will participate and can grow through focused spiritual experiences.
