Maggie Ross in Maine March 1-9 and BBC Radio 4

Maggie Ross will be in Maine March 1-9. There will be at least two Contemplative Eucharists in addition to discussion groups, preaching, individual meetings and other activities. For further information contact

"The Museum of Curiosity" is a new series of six half-hour programmes that will begin airing on BBC Radio 4 on February 20, 6:30-7 PM GMT. In one of the programmes, to be broadcast March 26, host John Lloyd (of "Spitting Image" fame), comedian Bill Bailey (the "curator" of the museum) and guests John Gribbin (cosmologist), comedian Alan Davies, and Maggie Ross (using her other name, Sr Martha Reeves) discuss whether their donations of The Big Bang, Epping Forest, and Silence should be included. You can listen online and download these programs after the fact (, click on Radio 4). Making the programme was a gas; I have never laughed so hard for so long as I did during those two hours of taping.

A reminder also that "The Fire of Your Life: A Solitude Shared" and "Pillars of Flame: Power, Priesthood and Spiritual Maturity" with a new forward by Archbishop Desmond Tutu have recently been republished by Seabury Books. (See link to Church Publishing).

At the end of March, Maggie Ross will also be teaching an online course, "The Uses of Silence" for the continuing education program of the Church Divinity School of the Pacific. For futher information, see their website.
