Our 2015 Festival of Faiths, Sacred Journeys, went back to our roots with a deep look at the life and legacy of Thomas Merton. The Center for Interfaith Relations sits at the corner of Fourth and Walnut streets in Louisville, the exact spot where Merton had the epiphany that we are “all walking around shining like the sun.”
