Spanning the life of CS Lewis

aslan2A biography of C.S. Lewis, by Alister McGrath, is worth the read. It broadened my sense of C.S. Lewis beyond Narnia and Mere Christianity. Lewis’ life shows the possibilities and limitations of the human mind. He went from an atheistic belief system to defending Christianity. He produced a plethora of material that has since been developed even further.

I remember watching, and loving, the film The Chronicles of Narnia. This was an example of how images and sounds can speak to us about the power of good over evil.

It reminds me to listen to the falling snow and hear peace. It reminds me to watch the images of people walking side-by-side and see love.

It also reminds me that the belief system of today may not be the belief system of tomorrow. To judge what is before me, I must do it with a caliber of flexibility that allows me to adapt to changes yet while still knowing the steadiness of God, good.

Spirituality gets us through life with more success
