The first meeting of 2022 for the Grand Rapids chapter of the International Thomas Merton Society will be Wednesday, March 9th, from 7-9pm, at…
Orchard View Church of God
2777 Leffingwell Ave NE
Grand Rapids, MI 49525
Orchard View Church of God is located at the corner of 3 Mile Rd and Leffingwell in the northeast section of Grand Rapids. Easy access is via the East Beltline. Get off at the 3 Mile Road exit. Leffingwell is on the south side of 3 Mile Road between the East Beltline and Dean Lake Road. (You can see the church from 3 Mile Road.)
Of course, we will offer bottled water and treats. Probably even some decaf coffee, for those so inclined.
We will discuss these chapters in Merton’s first book, The Seven Storey Mountain:
A Note to the Reader
Our Lady of the Museums
The Harrowing of Hell
The Children in the Market Place
That’s roughly the first 144 pages.
If you don’t yet have a copy of The Seven Storey Mountain, you can probably get it from Amazon in a day or two by clicking here.
