Tonight at 8pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's Political Gravity.

Your host Jane Hoffman goes back to one of our favorite subjects on Ernest Radio Network, that of monk & charity worker Thomas Merton.  He lived an extraordinary yet simplistic life, dedicating it to God's service.  Tonight, Jane focuses her attention on his time at the Abbey of Gethsemani, in Kentucky.  He arrived there in 1941, and stayed until his death in 1968.  You'll hear more on this amazing human being tonight.

All this plus NPR news, music, & much more.
