Hello all, just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be on the road in the upcoming days to give some talks in the North East. The first is Wednesday March 7 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY, for the Chapel and Cultural Center Lenten Speaker Series. The title of that talk is “The Digital Christ: Communion in a Technological Era.” For contact information, visit the Chapel and Cultural Center website of the RPI Newman Center. A few days later I’m giving a presentation and leading a prayerful discussion and reflection at St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church and Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry in downtown Hartford, Conn. There the topic is Thomas Merton and the presentation title is “Thomas Merton: Modern Prophet and Model of Contemplation and Action.” You can learn more at the parish and center’s website. As always, you can follow the latest events at the “Speaking Schedule” page over at DanHoran.com. Have a wonderful day! (PS — I hope, starting tomorrow, to have regular reflections back up here, so stay tuned!).
