A Merton Hour with Liz Burkemper: Fourth and Walnut

In the waning light of the Buck Moon, let us read and reflect together on Thomas Merton’s moment of enlightenment at the corner of Fourth and Walnut (from Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander). What is a Fourth and Walnut of yours? (You may have many.) What might it mean to experience such a moment in the early 2020s rather than the late 1950s? How are we meant to carry these moments beyond their immediate happening?
