By Publicity Admin
In these uncertain and challenging times, the need for activism is greater than ever before. But so many of us are frustrated and exhausted, feeling like our actions are ineffectual. The Activist’s Tao Te Ching by William Martin gives us some encouraging and helpful advice, and in this video interview, Martin explains how we can take a Taoist approach to activism. Through the lens of Lao Tzu and the Tao Te Ching, Martin highlights how our revolutionary work can be like water, finding the right action for the right moment, be it flowing through/around, flooding over, or evaporating to “rain on the other side.”

THOMAS MERTON’S CREATION SPIRITUALITY JOURNEY: An excerpt from A WAY TO GOD by Matthew Fox
By Publicity Admin

In 2015, groundbreaking theologian and bestselling author Matthew Foxwas invited by the Thomas Merton Center in Louisville, Kentucky, to give a lecture to honor the centennial year of the legendary Catholic monk and writer’s birth. In preparing for the talk, Fox reimmersed himself in Merton’s work and revisited the correspondence they shared while Merton was alive. As Fox read through Merton’s journals, poetry, and religious writings, he realized that his exploration was generating far more inspiring material than just one talk.

The result is A Way to God: Thomas Merton’s Creation Spirituality Journey, a powerful book about Merton’s pioneering work in deep ecumenism and interfaith; about his essential teachings on mixing contemplation and action; and about how the vision of thirteenth-century mystic Meister Eckhart profoundly influenced both Merton and Creation Spirituality, which Fox has long espoused and written about.
