Thanks to Valerie, a dear colleague from my Spiritual Direction class, who tenderly suggested that I had misidentified Thomas Kelly in my blog this week. She was right. I mixed up Thomas Kelly and Thomas Keating. Keating is the one who re-introduced the world to centering prayer. Kelly was an Ohio Quaker who wrote about the spiritual life. Both contributed to the spiritual journeys of many Christians of their day and today. Both of them have impacted my spiritual growth and their work often finds its way into our retreats.
Thanks Valerie, for your email. I really appreciate hearing from those of you who read the blog. Remember, you are free to submit a blog at any time. I would love to have others contributing to this dialogue.
