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

Lewis at Desk

Welcome to "The Kindlings Muse @ The CS Lewis Centre." In this segment we discuss Lewis' unfrantic spirituality with Kim Gilnett of Seattle Pacific University (SPU) and a leading light in the C.S. Lewis world. Kim led the restoration project at The Kilns, C.S. Lewis home in Oxford.

Here's the quote voiced by British actor Anton Rodgers:

"The English style of spirituality is a rhythm of worship, work, reading, and leisure. This is an un-frantic response to God who is, as Lewis insisted, always a courteous Lord. Life-style is revealed by the use of time: what is given place and space; what is included and what, therefore, is excluded.What we see in Lewis is the steady place of his parish church; the quiet regularity of his Bible-reading and prayers; the natural large place for his main work of study and writing; the large blocks of time for leisurely conversations with special friends; and the importance of letter writing, especially with those who sought his help in the mater of Christian pilgrimage For all of his immense output of literary work, his life is marked by a spacious, un-frantic rhythm of worship, work, conversation, availability, and intimacy."

This show is produced in cooperation with SPU and Faith and Values Media.
