Hiking to Heal

When was the last time you had an opportunity to pause, ponder, and pray about the Lord’s presence and action in your daily life? In Luke 24:32, the story of the road to Emmaus, two discouraged disciples (in the days after Calvary) were walking together when they met a “stranger.” He questioned them, explained the Scriptures and, finally, they recognized Him in the breaking of the bread. Afterward, they exclaimed: Were our hearts not burning within us while he was speaking to us on the road….?
In this outdoor retreat, we will create a space to invite Gods natural creation, as well as His Words in scripture, to support us as we pause, ponder, and pray through some of our life history. May this be a time of discovering/rediscovering Jesus subtle and sustaining presence, and invite Him to heal and bring renewal in our lives. We will begin at the Abbey at 9:00 AM and end by sharing the Eucharist with the Norbertine community at 11:30 AM.
PRESENTER: Heather Makowicz is a certified Catholic Spiritual Director, holds a Masters in Clinical Social Work and is pursuing graduate studies at The Theology of the Body Institute. As founder and president of Peak Encounter Ministries, she organizes and leads hiking excursions that integrate prayer while encouraging people to encounter God in creation.
