A 2018 Advent Workshop at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church

Advent in the Company of Thomas Merton
with Br. Daniel-Chad

This Saturday, December 1, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM (includes lunch; rsvp required)
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Raleigh, Community Life Center

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was the most prominent monastic voice of the twentieth century and a deep spiritual thinker, writer, and peace activist.  In this workshop, Br. Daniel-Chad will review Merton’s life and singular contribution to contemporary spirituality by viewing and discussing the award-winning film Soul Searching:  The Journey of Thomas Merton.  Then we will invite Merton into our 2018 Advent practice through readings and exercises in the Advent and Christmas Bridges to Contemplative Living with Thomas Merton booklet. Participants will take home their copy of the booklet to use throughout the Advent season.

A limited number of copies of the workshop booklet have been ordered for registered participants. A $5 donation suggested.

When replying, please indicate if you would like us to reserve a copy for you!
