I’ve meant to put the word out about this series here on the blog sooner (those who follow on Facebook and Twitter might have already seen this notice or perhaps you’ve already seen this advertised in Commonweal magazine or elsewhere), but things have been rather hectic lately and I’m just getting around to it. There is a great series at Corpus Christi Church on the Upper West Side (near Columbia University, across the street from Union Theological Seminary) that brings in a number of speakers and professional musicians for a liturgical, spiritual, and theological encounter each Sunday evening during Lent. This year’s theme is focused on Thomas Merton given the 75th Anniversary of his Baptism at Corpus Christi Church. I’m humbled to have been invited to be one of the presenters along with some other good friends and Merton colleagues throughout Lent. I’ll be there this Sunday, March 3rd, so if you’re around consider stopping by to share in prayer, reflection, and the life and legacy of Thomas Merton this Lent!
