Hello, fellow Lewisians. Welcome to a New Year and a new decade!
I’m excited and a bit anxious (in a good way) about starting a new year. The thought of this being our decade of the “20’s” is a bit daunting but has ignited a spark of anticipation for me that I’ve not felt for several years.
For this month’s meeting, I thought it might be fun and encouraging to share our thoughts about the New Year and decade. I found a thought-provoking blog commenting on why C.S. Lewis would consider New Years as a good gift from God. The blogger quotes a section from the Screwtape Letters. The subject of Screwtape’s lesson has to do with human beings and our desire for change or “dread of the same old thing” that exists alongside our love of permanence. It’s a quick read, here’s the link:http://thewardrobedoor.
We can use it as a starting point for our discussion. Please bring any other Lewis/Tolkein/Inklings quotes, and your thoughts, that you deem applicable to a discussion about a “fresh start,” New Year, or a new beginning.
Our meeting is this Wednesday, 1/15, 7:30 P.M.
St Luke’s Episcopal Church
122 S California Ave, Monrovia, CA 91016
I’ll supply hot water, a tea selection (herbal too), and coffee. Please feel free to bring a snack to share with the group if you feel so moved.
Looking forward to catching up with you after our holiday break.
