Thoughts From C.S. Lewis

Dear Friends, My purpose in sending out these weekly "thoughts" has always been to bless you with the writings of people whom you may not have heard of, read, or yet discovered (and for those well-read, some of their materials which you may not have yet discovered)! My goal is to send out things that are helpful and encouraging, or may help you see things from a new perspective. The same is true today. Today I'm offering you some quotes taken from the writings of a man who has been profoundly helpful to me in my Christian walk - C. S. Lewis. I am often chided for only quoting the old dead guys in my sermons, yet, that's because so much of what they say resonates with my soul! Not because it's old, but because it's true, and so often profound. C. S. Lewis is one of those people. Thus I offer you just a little taste of his wisdom. I have never read him without learning something new. I trust the same is true for you. Enjoy.
