An Encounter with Thomas Merton

January 21, 2015

Themes of his journey, and ours

This January marked the 100th anniversary of Thomas Merton's birth.  Join the Rev. Brian C.Taylor for a morning spent exploring some of the passions of this remarkably authentic, complex, and holy monk. Merton was a social activist on a deep inner journey, a hermit and a gregarious correspondent, a prolific writer and advocate of silence, a creative spirit in a creative time. Together we'll reflect on how some of these themes of Merton's life challenge us - both individually and as a faith community - to seek authenticity and holiness of life. We'll also share the Eucharist, and a time of guided contemplative prayer.

Saturday, March 14 from 8:30 am - noon at Church of the Atonement, Chicago. Please RSVP by email.
