“Chesterton as Mystic”
Looking into 2018, January will feature our examination of GKC as mystic using this definition; noun 1.a person who seeks by contemplation and self-surrender to obtain unity with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or who believes in the spiritual apprehension of truths that are beyond the intellect. Robert Wild wrote a book in 2013 The Tumbler of God which addresses this exact topic and may be an excellent resource. Our own Ken C. addressed the topic & Wild’s book and Ken’s writings may be found at the following: http://www.hprweb.com/2013/05/the-latest-book-reviews-7/
February 19th we have penciled in the topic of Chesterton as Distributist. I am not quite ready to post a definition to organize out thinking/discussion but will as soon as I can.
The above date represents the third Monday of the month and that is our regular meeting with a starting time of 7 PM (but come when you can and leave when you have to go). We will be found in the downstairs dining area of C. J. Muggs located at 101 W. Lockwood, Webster Groves in the historic Gorlock Building. The management has been very supportive of our meetings and the wait staff has been exemplary in taking care of us. We have room to grow so please come and bring a friend/family member/enemy to experience the richness of G. K. Chesterton’s thought.
