Thomas Merton's Legacy to Interfaith Dialogue
"Thomas Merton's Legacy to Interfaith Dialogue"
Merton was deeply committed to Interfaith dialogue, corresponding with Monks and Religious Leaders all over the world. Indeed it was on such a trip to engage with the Buddhists of Thailand that he tragically died on December 10th 1968.
Revd Dr Bonnie Thurston is a New Testament scholar who held the William F. Orr Professorship in the New Testament at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary from 1999 to 2002. She is the author or editor of twenty two theological books and six books of poetry, and wrote one of the first PhD dissertations on Merton.
Dr Thurston is a spiritual director and experienced retreat leader, and a founding member and past president of the International Thomas Merton Society.
Holland House is delighted to welcome Dr Thurston to lead a day on the principles of Interfaith Dialogue as espoused by Thomas Merton. This is an exciting one-off opportunity for anyone interested either in Merton or Interfaith work. An expert in Merton, Dr Thurston will lead us in a day of both learning and discussion regarding how we also might go about the critical work of Interfaith dialogue in the 21st century.
The day includes all refreshments and hot lunch and concludes at 4pm with afternoon tea.
