Please note that while we have now covered off three of our five sessions, newcomers are still most welcome! On Wednesday April 2 we’ll be completing our conversations on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, with a focus on chapters 13-17. On April 9 we’ll be screening the BBC version of Into the Shadowlands, the story of the C.S. Lewis’s late life romance with Joy Davidman.
This year our Wednesday evening Lenten series will be decidedly different from what we’ve done in past years. This five-week series will find us exploring some of the themes C.S. Lewis raises in his classic book for children, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Who was C.S. Lewis? Why did this Oxford scholar and world famous Christian apologist turn his hand to the writing of stories for children? What might his imaginary world of Narnia tell us about our own world?
To really take part, you’ll need to get your own copy of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and read along with us. Think of this as being something of an over-sized book group! Copies are easy to come by in one of our remaining local bookstores, online through various vendors, or at the Winnipeg Public Library.
