“I would have to guess that for most people their first encounter with Thomas Merton is rarely their last encounter with Thomas Merton. Once he takes an interest in you he seems rather unwilling to let go. And if and when you try to escape, it seems that he will only follow you anyway with a rather dogged determination.”
This quote from Doug Hertler aka Doug Lory, actor, playwright and star of the one -man show, Merton and Me—A Living Trinity, captures IVC-Milwaukee’s objective for this unique event presented on September 10, 2022. The program attracted 43 enthused IVC-Milwaukee friends to the beautiful Cedarburg home of John Libscomb and Kelly Robbins Stephenson who graciously hosted the event.
