On the Road with Thomas Merton

Check out this beautiful essay by Fred Bahnson, ‘On the Road with Thomas Merton’ and the accompanying short film (11 min) by Jeremy Seifert.

Bahnson and Seifert followed the itinerary Merton took on a trip in 1968 and wrote about in Woods, Shore, Desert, his posthumously-published journal.

We are so happy that Fred contributed an essay, “The Priest in the Trees,” to our forthcoming book, Common Prayer: Reflections on Episcopal Worship.
