Praying Your Story: A Day with Esther Hizsa, author of Stories of an Everyday Pilgrim

Join Esther for a spacious day of stories, silence, and prayer.

“My hope is that you will hear your story in mine and be loved as you meet God there.”

During our time together, you will be given opportunities to reflect and pray with how God has been present in your life. When we set aside time to retreat together with our attention focused on a particular question, God often enables us to be present to ourselves and our Maker in a way we may not experience on our own.
