On August 13, 2003 The Dallas Morning News reported that "when Mary Kappes is feeling stressed, or wrestling with a problem, she often finds herself walking in circles... She goes to small clearing in a wooded area behind the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff, Texas. There, to the buzz of cicadas, she walks the circular pathway of a labyrinth built by members three years ago... Kappes is one of a growing number of people who are discovering this ancient tool for spiritual growth. More than ever, labyrinths are being incorporated into places of worship and other public spaces... Unlike a maze, which seeks to confuse, labyrinths are seen as pathways to spiritual insight and clarity."
