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 God's natural creation, as well as His Words in scripture, to support us as we pause, ponder, and pray through some of our life histories. May this be a time of discovering/re-discovering Jesus' subtle, sustaining presence, as well as an invitation for Him to heal and bring renewal in our lives.
