What I Am Reading

I am trying to get back on the reading bandwagon. Some friends have recently recommended books to me so I have purchased a few and now they are stacked on my table. Here's what I am currently reading.

Since January 1st I have been reading a daily thought from "A Year with Thomas Merton, Daily Meditations from His Journals", edited by Jonathan Montaldo.
This morning I started "Into The Silent Land, A Guide to the Christian Practice of Contemplation" by Martin Laird. This was recommended to me by one of my friends who is a monk of Gethsemani.

In the next day or so I will spend come of my evenings reading "Gilead" by Marilynne Robinson. This was recommended to me by my dear friend, Katie. She recently sent me an email recommending it and saying "the whole time I was reading it I thought of you". I will be interested in knowing why....

Finally, I am reading a revised and updated version of "The Enneagram, A Christian Perspective" by Richard Rohr and Andreas Ebert. Richard is a friend and former teacher of mine.

I'm not ready to review these books for you but it's very likely that any wisdom I gleam from them will find it's way into my writing.
