We'll be continuing our conversation on the writings of C.S. Lewis this month by looking at Letters 21 and 30, which we sent out in our most recent e-mail (email Kate if you need a copy!). Come with your lunch for discussion! If you weren't able to come to the last meeting, not to worry. These letters all stand alone. (For those who don't know the premise of this fictional work, the letters are written by a senior demon named Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood (a younger and less experienced demon). Wormwood is charged with guiding a man toward "Our Father Below" (i.e. Devil/Satan) and away from "the Enemy" (i.e. God).)
As always, even if you don't have time to read, you are most certainly welcome to join us!
"And all the time the joke is that the word 'Mine' in its fully possessive sense cannot be uttered by a human being about anything. In the long run either Our Father or the Enemy will say 'Mine' of each thing that exists, and specially of each man. They will find out in the end, never fear, to whom their time, their souls, and their bodies really belong--certainly not to them, whatever happens." -Screwtape in Screwtape Letters "21"
