  • Chapter 2: The Jagged Horizon Beckons | The Nomadic Monk

    On a four-day, high-altitude adventure through the Cirque of the Towers in the Wind River Range of Wyoming, Fr. Nathan Sparks copes with rugged terrain, swarming mosquitos, thin air, and the dangers of grizzly bears. Amid the majesty of jagged granite towers, breathtaking views, and fishing in quiet mountain streams, he reflects on the mystery of mountains, the adventure of faith, and the call to discover our bliss in the journey of holiness. Reflection Questions: As I think about "the hero's journey," the call from the ordinary into the unknown, what stages of the journey might I recognize in my own life? What are the "jagged horizons" that have invited me to the adventure of truly living and of going deeper with God? What might be the people, the places, or events that have interrupted my day-to-day? What might be the tragedies, the trials, the beauties, and the loves that have ignited my sense of wonder? Do I experience the call to holiness and to beatitude also as a call to the joy and adventure of the Kingdom of God, an adventure which will unlock the deepest and most fulfilling parts of my heart? How do I relate to the unknowns in my life and in my heart? With fear and anxiety, or with faith and trust in God's desire to guide me to my bliss?

  • Chapter 1: Thirst of the Ancient Ocean | The Nomadic Monk

    Fr. Nathan Sparks, SJ wanders solo for three days in the desert moonscape of Badlands National Park in South Dakota. In the midst of triple-digit heat, limited water-supplies, the dangers of rattle-snakes, and the occasional buffalo, he also encounters the stunning beauty of this ancient ocean landscape. He discovers, in the traces of the primordial waters and the poverty of the desert, the mystery of creation, of love, of life on earth, and our thirst to encounter the origin of all things. Reflection Questions: In what ways might my life look different to me, if I reflect on the reality that in each and every moment, God is loving me into existence and creating me fresh from his hands? How does my future look, when I imagine God creating me anew in every moment? How does the world look to me, when I contemplate creation and reflect on the wonder that anything exists at all, particularly a world so beautiful, and that I myself, and each and every person, are a part of the wonder and the beauty?
