One Peace, One Walk: Walking the Labyrinth Toward Peace

One Peace, One Walk: Walking the Labyrinth Toward Peace

  • Location: First & Central Presbyterian Church
    1101 N Market St, Wilmington, Delaware, 19801
  • Organization(s): First & Central Presbyterian Church
  • Well-being

How can a walk on a labyrinth create peace? And how can a person’s inner peace affect transformation in other aspects of life?

Walking a labyrinth is an active meditation that can help us center ourselves, cultivate peace within, AND learn to act peacefully in our “outer” relationships—with our families, communities, and the world. This year’s theme is We Are One: One Peace, One Week, One Delaware. So, we invite you to join us in this One Peace.

Walk the labyrinth—one step for one moment of peace…

This is an indoor drop-in event.  Please arrive anytime from 12 noon to 6 pm. Our hosts will gladly assist you and explain the labyrinth to new walkers. An adult must accompany children. Finger labyrinths are available for those who cannot walk the Chartres pattern floor labyrinth. Masks are optional.
Please note that you can register for this event on-site when you arrive if you did not register online.

The State of Homelessness and Affordable Housing in Delaware

  • Location: Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew (SsAM)
    719 N. Shipley Street, Wilmington, DE, 19801, New Castle County
  • Organization(s): First Unitarian Church of Wilmington
  • Human rights, Inclusion, Public policy

This event will feature the most recent findings produced by Housing Alliance Delaware (HAD), which aims to advance housing opportunities, end homelessness, and promote vibrant communities. The findings will share the number of people seeking emergency housing, the cost of affordable and safe apartments, the rate of eviction, and the disparate effect of housing instability on people of color and women-headed households. Rabbi Sonya Starr, Policy Director, Housing Alliance Delaware, and individuals with lived experience with homelessness in Delaware will share how inadequate housing impacts communities and, most notably, what more needs to be done to find solutions to the housing crisis in DE. See https://www.housingalliancede.org/ for more information about HAD.

On-site registration will be available for those who choose not to book/register online.
