The Monthly Gathering
The monthly two-hour gathering will include prayer and reflective dialogue with staff and other program participants on the focus topic for the month. The meetings are held on Zoom from 9:30—11:30 a.m. on Saturday mornings. The sessions are led by Benedictine Peace Center staff with expertise in a particular topic.
The book (available on Amazon) that will guide our discussions is The Seeker and the Monk: Everyday Conversations with Thomas Merton by Sophfronia Scott. The author is a young black woman from a non-Catholic faith tradition who explores Merton’s journals for his thoughts on how to live in these turbulent times. She dialogues and spars with him, inviting us into conversation around such topics as race, ambition, faith, activism, nature, prayer, friendship, and love.
