Victor Judge on Thomas Merton
The year 2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of the Trappist monk Thomas Merton who is acknowledged as one of the most influential literary-theologians of the twentieth century. In his role as writer and social critic, Merton articulates his conviction that nihilism, alienation, and divisiveness impede our efforts to discover a common humanity—a conviction that continues to challenge us as participants in the human condition. To honor the memory of Merton and his contributions to the canon of religious literature, we shall study his autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain and his volume titled Thoughts in Solitude in which he addresses the importance of quiet reflection in one’s spiritual formation. Victor Judge, the assistant dean for academic affairs at Vanderbilt University Divinity School, will lecture.

We will take a passenger bus from Church departing early morning, drive to and eat lunch in Memphis before touring the museum. At the conclusion of the tour, we will have a lecture with former Attorney General Mike Cody who was Martin Luther King’s attorney in Memphis when King was assassinated. We will eat dinner on the way home.
The cost is not fully determined but will be approximately $60 per person for the day. We can take the first 50 to sign up.
