great CS Lewis article

go here to read this great article

I will be chewing on this one for some time to come. It makes clear the central thing about Lewis that the writer of the nasty "Narnia shows everything that's wrong with religion" article in the Guardian can never understand-- what Jesus was talking about when he said we must come to Him as a little child.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful article.

I love this line: "when we can no longer be "wide open to the glory," we have lost not just our childlikeness, but also something near the core of our humanity."

Great stuff.

"I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia."

Kai & Thomas,
The Silver Chair is without a doubt my favourite Chronicle of Narnia. Prince Rilian reminds me so much of that prayer we have "save me whether I want it or not..."
