Special Event: Merton and Delio

Alan Kolp, from the Thomas Merton Center hosts
Partners in the General Dance of the Spirit: Thomas Merton and Ilia Delio Evolving into Grandeur of God
November 8, 2022 at 8:00 pm EST

Merton and Delio are restless in spirit. They embraced the ongoing work of the Spirit in their lives as the evolutionary reality that continually called them out of the ordinary into the extra­ordinary. They accepted the awkwardness of learning how to dance in the Spirit in order to move with rhythm, rather than move through routine. To discover and live in the rhythm of the Spirit is to experience vibrancy – energy, strength and resiliency. And the Spirit invites us all: find a partner and dance.

Dr. Alan Kolp holds the Baldwin Wallace Chair in Faith & Life and is Professor of Religion at Baldwin Wallace University. In addition to his work in spirituality, he has authored books with a business colleague and Cleveland Clinic physician in the area of high performance and leadership. His forthcoming book, Better Humans, Better Performance: Driving Leadership, Teamwork and Culture with Intention­ality, will be available in the fall.

Register and Listen on November 8 at 8:00 p.m. EST

    Very much a tonic for what ails me. The infinite love of God is so great that the speaker (Alan Kolp) did not include sin in his presentation. My comment on this fact: consider what Christ revealed to Julian of Norwich–God’s love is so vast, infinite, that sin is negligible. “Forgive them God, sinners do not know what they are doing.”
