C.S. Lewis weighs in

"Don't come talking to me about the consolations of religion," he wrote in A Grief Observed, "or I shall suspect that you don't understand."

(I just read this in an article on life after death and had to share it.)

Funny, I was thinking last time when you said you were glad I knew of Christians who didn't take the simplistic and glib line, 'well, there's you and CS Lewis for a start...'

Well, that is pretty funny! I am so thankful for Clive Staples. From fifth grade on, he's had a lot to do with how I see things.

(I read A Grief Observed, but I read it too young. I need to read it again, now that I have some life to go along with the reading.)

(Life and death, perhaps I ought to have put it.)
