Orders can now be made from Main Street Rag, or you can get a signed copy from me. If you want a copy of both Seriously Dangerous and Better With Friends, I can cut you deal.

Advance Orders will be sent out soon from Main Street Rag.  I don’t know the exact date.

Merton’s Voice:

Today, Father, this blue sky lauds you. The delicate green and orange flowers of the tulip poplar tree praise you. The distant blue hills praise you, together with the sweet-smelling air that is full of brilliant light. The bickering flycatchers praise you with the lowing cattle and the quails that whistle over there. I too, Father, praise you, with all these my brothers, and they give voice to my own heart and to my own silence. We are all one silence, and a diversity of voices.

Merton, Thomas. Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander (New York: Image, 1968)  177

Psalm 69: 34

Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in them.


Jesus said, ‘ If you make my word your home you will indeed be my disciples. You will learn the truth and the truth will make you free’. (John 8 )

Nouwen’s Voice:

The father (in the parable of the Prodigal) welcomes his sons just as they are. His love is there for them whether they are at home or away. Love flows from the heart… this same love flows from each of us because God’s Spirit of abundant love flows through our hearts.
