Our first meeting will be held Wednesday, May 11, at 7pm in the Community Room at Baker Book House, which is located near the corner of 28th Street and East Paris in Southeast Grand Rapids.

That evening, we’ll show the DVD Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton, and read from his book New Seeds of Contemplation.
