MMC Dedicates New Labyrinth, Peace Pole Today

Martin Methodist College (MMC) will host a dedication ceremony Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 4 p.m. for the newly-constructed labyrinth and peace pole behind the campus’s Turner Center.

 

A hand-crafted monument, the peace pole planted in the center of the newly-constructed labyrinth displays the message and prayer “May Peace Prevail on Earth.” A product of The Peace Pole Project, this symbol on MMC’s campus is one of thousands of peace poles planted across the world.

 

The project was funded by a grant from Interfaith Youth Core, a national non-profit organization working towards an America where people of different faiths, worldviews and traditions can bridge differences and find common values to build a shared life together. The labyrinth and peace pole were constructed by MMC staff, faculty and students.

 

“The labyrinth serves as a focused path for all people to use for prayer, reflection and meditation,” said Campus Chaplain Rev. Laura McMasters. “The students chose to plant a peace pole at the center of the labyrinth as we hope using the labyrinth will help center us to increase peace within ourselves and in our community.”
