50 years

While the rest of the world may still be obsessing over the loss of so-called "Camelot," which was a myth if there ever was one, I'd be remiss if I didn't note it's also the anniversary of the passing of C.S. Lewis, whose writings inspired the name of this blog and nurtured the worldview that underpins it.
“Daily prayers and religious readings and churchgoing are necessary parts of the Christian life. We have to be continually reminded of what we believe. Neither this belief nor any other will automatically remain alive in the mind. It must be fed. And as a matter of fact, if you examined a hundred people who had lost their faith in Christianity, I wonder how many of them would turn out to have been reasoned out of it by honest argument? Do not most people simply drift away?”
Instead of pondering the injunction to "ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country," the world would be so much better off if everyone considered what they could do to honor God and serve their fellow man.
