Change brings us, either slowly or suddenly, to the threshold of a new place in our lives. For this morning’s walk: If you fear stepping through the door, know that there is a space, a vestibule, in which you can stand if only momentarily and prepare for what is next. Shout out in memory of Frederick Buechner, a profound writer and man of spirit who passed away this week.
What’s next? I’m talking about hope (again!) and Thomas Merton (yes, that guy!), but this time to the Thomas Merton Society of Great Britain and Ireland. This is the presentation I would have done at their conference earlier this year, but the event was canceled due to Covid. Glad to do this now and share the forum with the talented Chris Pramuk. The event will take place via Zoom on September 1, 2022, at 2:00pm ET. Register by emailing email@example.com.
A Circle of Quiet: The Madeleine L’Engle Writing Retreat co-leading with my friend Sarah Arthur! We’ve added a virtual option for this retreat so if you’re not traveling, check it out: https://lenglewritingretreats.com/?page_id=126
Take care and I’ll see you soon.
