“You are never to old to set a new goal or dream a new dream.” C. S. Lewis
Sharing A Dream
During a charming “Moveable Feast” service last night at Grace-St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Rev. Richard Lawson encouraged children and adults alike to share in C. S. Lewis’ encouragement use our imaginations to “dream a new dream.”
He provided this background on C. S. Lewis:
Born in Belfast, Ireland on November 29, 1898, Clive Staples Lewis was raised as an Anglican but rejected Christianity during his adolescent years.
After serving in Word War I, he started a long academic career as a scholar in medieval and renaissance literature at both Oxford and Cambridge. He also began an inner journey that led him from atheism to agnosticism to theism and finally faith in Jesus Christ.
Lewis’ conversion inaugurated a wonderful outpouring of Christian apologetics in media as varied as popular theology, children’s literature, fantasy and science fiction, and correspondence on spiritual matters with friends and strangers alike.
“You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.” C. S. Lewis
