I’m just getting back from a weekend in Phoenix which I will soon tell you all about. It was awesome! I’ve got just enough time to do some laundry and repack my bags. I’ll be in Toronto this coming weekend for two days of presentations from our series The Sayings of Jesus: The Intersection of Faith and Social Justice.
I’ll be speaking at:
Willowdale Evangelical Church
236 Finch Avenue East
Toronto, ON Canada
The presentation times will be:
Friday night at 7:30 – Jesus from the Edges
Saturday morning at 10:00 – Jesus and Self-Affirming Resistance
Saturday morning at 11:00 – Jesus for Today
Saturday afternoon at 2:30 – Questions and Discussion
If you live in the Toronto area, I’d love to see you there!
RHM’s Annual Reading Course Book for September
Merton’s book, banned for forty years, is just as relevant today as it was when it was first written.
It is with solemn purpose that we at RHM add this volume to 2017’s annual reading course for September.
“Writing at the height of the Cold War, Merton issued this passionate challenge to the idea that unthinkable violence can be squared with the Gospel of Christ. Censors of Merton’s order blocked publication of this work, but forty years later if you substitute ‘war on terrorism’ for ‘war on communism’ Merton’s message remains eerily topical.”
