Please join us for a discussion on the Divisiveness in Politics and Religion led by award-winning local author, Roland Merullo, at Saint Susanna Parish in Dedham on Monday, October 16 from 7 PM to 9 PM.
In a country divided by partisan politics and a world torn apart by hatred and war, Mr. Merullo has developed a unique perspective based on thirty years of reading across the religious, philosophical, and psychological spectrum and meditation retreats at Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist, and nondenominational retreat centers and monasteries. He will share his thoughts about how we should respond to the anger and divisiveness around us and engage your questions and concerns.
Mr. Merullo's many works include Breakfast with Buddha, about a road trip with a Buddhist monk, and American Savior, which envisions Jesus coming to earth and running for President because he is dismayed at how religious zealots and politicians have distorted his teachings to turn love into hatred and faith into a call for arms. Mr. Merullo's latest novel is The Delight of Being Ordinary: A Road Trip with the Pope and the Dalai Lama. His website is: www.rolandmerullo.com
Please join us for what promises to be an enlightening evening. The talk is free of charge and as always, all are welcome at Saint Susanna (262 Needham Street, Dedham, MA). For details visit the Faith Formation - Adult Page at the parish website: www.saintsusanna.org
