C.S.Lewis

Easter: "A new musical tradition"

The Reverend Robin Sims-Williams
'“Well, sir, if things are real, they’re there all the time." "Are they?" said the Professor; and Peter did not quite know what to say.'

C.S. Lewis actually refused to accept the idea that his children’s books were allegorical in this way. Undoubtedly he used them to wrestle with philosophy and beliefs with particularly Christian ideas. But they were not a direct allegory of the Christian Narrative.

Christmas: "Spectacles Not Spectacle"

The Revd Brutus Green

When I was about 8 I decided I didn’t believe in God. I know what you’re thinking - how childish, how silly; but it was just a phase I was going through and all children like their little rebellions. On the particular day, I remember going to my middle brother with a number of questions. Probably in the background were certain matters following Santa-gate; perhaps some disappointment concerning doubts cast over the gods of Roman, Greek and Norse mythology.
