CPE Unit 2, Thomas Merton and drag racing through the Bible


I started my second unit of CPE last week.  One question that I’m looking at this term is “how do I love God?”  This came up during our last unit as one of my fellow students described his theology as simply “love” – which says a lot and nothing at the same time.

As part of this, I’m reading Thomas Merton as well as engaging in a church group which is reading the Bible in 90 days.  I’m interested in Merton because of his incorporation of eastern thought in his spirituality.  Buddhism lends itself to spirituality in hospice care a great deal, and this may help me grow in this area.

Reading the bible in 90 days will lend some much needed discipline and meditation to my ongoing CPE education.  Also, I think that having a topic on mind as I read will guide me a bit as I do this.  I’ll give my impressions as I go.
