Welcome

The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

To receive cohort emails, join our Google group.

Into Great Silence

Julie mentioned this movie last week, and I found some online info about it. I would be very interested in watching this film and discussing it with others. I have been reading a lot of Thomas Merton since this summer, and the monastic life is richly fascinating to me. The documentary is 3 hours long, so we may need to set aside a night different from the regular cohort meeting, but we can talk about that later. Anyone else interested?

Anyway - here are some links:

By the way - we now have a copy of the DVD, so if anyone would like to borrow it, just let me (Jesse) know!

Thanks for the video link, Jesse. What a fascinating idea for a documentary! I'm certainly interested in viewing the film, and am happy to pitch in for the cost of buying it.
