I am remembering Thomas Merton 40 years after his pilgrimage to Asia in 1968. I'll be reading "The Asian Journal of Thomas Merton", studying some of the background texts, looking at the historical events of Merton's time, and generally using the opportunity to discover more about Merton and his message for today.
A very special welcome to those joining us from Donald Grayston's SFU class!
“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.” Thomas Merton
