Many Happy Returns


It's the 111st birthday of C.S. Lewis. Can we say it's his eleventy-first? Bring on the fireworks and the turkish delight!

It's also the first Sunday of Advent, a season of preparation for Christ's coming that so often becomes overshadowed by the spirit of consumerism. Recommended reading: Lewis's essay "XMas and Christmas: A Lost Chapter from Herodotus" from his book God in the Dock.

Greetings. I’m just doing a blog search looking for other CSL fans who aren’t exclusively Narnia movie fans. I also made a CSL birthday post at my blog, but found no die-hards among my regular readers, so I’m wandering looking for kindred spirits! Stop by and see me if you get a minute!
