Evelyn UnderhillSunday Dec. 6 marks the birthday of Evelyn Underhill…

Evelyn Underhill (6 December 1875 – 15 June 1941) was an English Anglo-Catholic writer and pacifist known for her numerous works on religion and spiritual practice, in particular Christian mysticism.

In the English-speaking world, she was one of the most widely read writers on such matters in the first half of the 20th century. No other book of its type—until the appearance in 1946 of Aldous Huxley’s The Perennial Philosophy—met with success to match that of her best-known work, Mysticism, published in 1911. (via Wikipedia)

Mysticism was a central focus of Underhill’s work. She defines it:

Mysticism is the art of union with Reality. The mystic is a person who has attained that union in greater or less degree; or who aims at and believes in such attainment.

Her book Practical Mysticism is available for FREE…

David Wheeler - Contingency Plans: PoemsDavid Wheeler’s new book of poetry Contingency Plans, was reviewed in our most recent print edition.

Read this review by Thomas Turner (PDF).

Also, here is an appropriate poem from the book that we also ran in the print edition…

Lent

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, and
I am already empty.
Soot shrouds my brow, evenly.
a note left by a soul lent
to a warden who didn’t want it.

Call me brother. Console me
with a gentle grip on my shoulder,
or slap me on my back and knock
a small, fragile fragment
of faith or hope or love loose.

I’ve given up so many things.
