The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is hectic enough. Especially when the weather in Michigan turns ugly.
That’s why the Grand Rapids chapter of the International Thomas Merton Society takes the month of December off every year to give its members one less thing to worry about.
When we reconvene on Wednesday, January 8th, 2020, at Baker Book House, we will pick up where we left off in Merton’s book No Man Is An Island and discuss the following chapters:
Chapter 4 – Pure Intention
Chapter 5 – The Word of the Cross
Chapter 6 – Asceticism and Sacrifice
Chapter 7 – Being and Doing
Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Years!
