Public Talk with Douglas E. Christie
May 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Spirituality and Community in a Time of Loss
at St. Andrew’s United Church.
Admission by donation.
Merton scholar Doug Christie will examine the place of darkness in our lives and ask what it can mean for us to enter and inhabit this vast space of unknowing and discover there not simply bewilderment but something Thomas Merton called “the hidden ground of love.”

A long-time Merton scholar, Doug’s most recent book, The Insurmountable Darkness of Love: Mysticism, Loss and the Common Life (Oxford) was published in 2022. Doug is founding editor of the journal Spiritus.
