WAYZATA, Minn. - This year, a 7-circuit labyrinth made of slate, called the Peace Labyrinth, was installed in the Ruth Bovey Stevens Garden at Wayzata Community Church.
The labyrinth is a new addition to the garden which was first began nearly 45 years ago.
In 1972, a few years after the completion of the Wakefield Chapel, member and avid gardener Ruth Bovey Stevens wanted to make something of the courtyard between the chapel and the sanctuary.
She approached Rev. Dr. Harold King with a plan for a courtyard garden and he approved for a committee to be formed.
Over 25 years later, on August 30, 1998, the garden space was dedicated to Stevens with a plaque on the gardens south wall. Garden committee members continue to plant flowers, bulbs, and shrubs to keep the space beautiful.
Last year, a major renovation took place at the Wayzata Community Church. Many of the original plants were saved and replanted in the space following the construction.
Both the garden and labyrinth are and will continue to be a sacred space for meditation and worship.

Everyone is welcome!
