Thomas Merton - Steward of Silence
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FRANKLIN, TN (JANUARY 11, 2008) - Saturday, January 19, 2008 at 9 am — 5 pm. In a time of great noise, Thomas Merton's way of silence is alive and well. An intentional examination of this once-worldly pilgrim's life and contemplative practice signals the beginning of our 2008 retreat season: Stewardship Speaks. We will examine Merton's life and final days through video, written texts and of course, silence and contemplation. We hope you enjoy this alternative to our traditional winter retreat on Merton's silence contemporary, Henri Nouwen.
