Advent1 Monday

It is essential to experience all the times and moods of this place. No one will know or be able to say how essential. Almost the first and most important element of a truly spiritual life.

— Thomas Merton in When the Trees Say Nothing: Writings on Nature edited by Kathleen Deignan

Today: A significant part of Merton’s spirituality was found within the natural beauty of his world. What place(s) in nature do you find it easy to commune with God? Why do you think you’re drawn to this place? If you’d like, write to me and tell me about your special place.
