Rekindling the Intellectual, Spiritual, Creative legacy of Christians in Culture

Jerry & pipe

"All growth requires the use of the imagination."

Each morning of KindlingsFest began with a devotional led by Dr. Jerry Root - who earned his Ph.D. at British Open University. Thesis: C. S. Lewis and the Problem of Evil: A Pervasive Theme. He is co-editor of the classic: The Quotable Lewis.  Starting with the value of the imagination in all endeavors Jerry touches on C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, John Polkinghorn, Charles Williams and more as he invites us to consider that one's imagination can lose its sense of wonder, replacing it with a swollen sense of self, unravelling our world. The Poverty of Soul opens one to all the resources of heaven.
