    On Labyrinths as Spiritual Disciplines

    Something to think about:

    In ancient Greek mythology, the Labyrinth was a giant maze which housed the Minotaur--a half-man-half-bull-man-eating monster--in the center, and to which human sacrifices of young men and women were made. Please remind me why Christians are using "spiritual" labyrinths (the word is still synonymous with “maze”) in an attempt to commune with God?
