Essentials of Thomas Merton: Thoughts Worth Pondering

Listening to Merton’s voice, we will consider his thoughts on true-self and false-self, contemplative prayer with the need for silence and solitude, Creation, the first gospel, and how his social writings speak to us now. We will pray with Merton – the mystic, the poet, the monk, the writer, the confidant, agent for social change, and the prophet.
