Are you spiritually curious, institutionally suspicious? Are you spiritual but not religious? Are you religious but longing for a different kind of church?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you might be interested in joining us for an exploration and discussion of the new book by Diana Butler Bass, Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening.

Sex is complicated. Simply “save it ’til you’re married” is no longer helpful advice in a culture where young adults are waiting longer to marry and LGBTQ couples aren’t legally allowed to marry in many states. Join us as we wind our way through the cultural maze to a place that is both sex-positive and God-positive. All discussions will include the Queer community.
Tuesdays in February, 7:30-9:00 pm in the Labyrinth Lounge on the Drag at 22nd & Guadalupe.
February 7: Flourishing Desire
Dr. David Jensen, Prof. of Constructive Theology at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, will talk with us about his latest book, Flourishing Desire, and how the ancient wisdom of Christianity is truly sex-positive.
February 14: St. Valentine’s Day for the Single, the Celibate & the Sexually Active
Whatever your relationship status, join us for a mealcatered by RASTA PASTA and a movie that you will not make you feel lame for being single. Please RSVP to Amelia:() to let her know you’re coming for dinner.
February 21 & 28: Sex RE-education
Guli Fager, Sex Educator with UT’s University Health Services, will review the basics of STI prevention, birth control options and sexual health. We will also address dating abuse prevention in honor of February, which is National Dating Abuse Prevention Month.
Our annual Labyrinth Fall Retreat is set for September 30 – October 2 at the Still Waters Retreat Center just outside of Austin.
All college students and members of Labyrinth are encouraged to attend and bring friends for this important time of bonding as a community of faith. This year’s retreat theme will focus on “REALationships” and what it takes to build lasting, loving relationships and communities, including practices like honesty, patience, confession and forgiveness.
Sister Marie Angele Sanchez from Eremos will lead our retreat and incorporate a variety of contemplative practices into our sessions, including time for artistic expression. It will be a chance to retreat from the chaos of the city and be nourished by good food, good company and the quiet presence of God.
Cost for the weekend is $25, which includes all meals, lodging and retreat supplies, but scholarships are available if cost is prohibitive. Save your spot by contacting Amelia!
This group meets weekly on Mondays from 6-7 pm in the Labyrinth Lounge, located along 22nd Street, just off Guadalupe. Our door is just past the flowerbeds on the south side of the street and has a stained glass dove.
This group is open to college students and adults of all ages. It is not group therapy, but rather an opportunity for those living with depression, anxiety, bi-polar and other mood-related illnesses to share their struggles and find support from a caring, non-judgmental group of peers. It will also be a safe space for participants to share ideas about what works in managing the ups and downs of depression and bi-polar, including how faith and spiritual practices can contribute to healing. David York will facilitate this group, and our discussions will be kept confidential. Please contact David or Amelia (firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 478-8559) if you have questions about this ministry or a desire to participate in this group.
