Who Inherits Your Copyrights? – If you haven’t thought about this yet, now would be a good time!
A short (24 minute) documentary on the importance of C.S. Lewis. You owe it to yourself to watch it sometime soon. Enjoy!
Thank you for this video. It was a great reminder of what C.S.Lewis means to me in my faith journey. Also, a pleasant surprise to see Joseph Pearce in the video. I had to go and dig out my journal from the C.S.Lewis retreat I had the privilege of attending Nov. 2012. Joseph Pearce had much to say about the book The Great Divorce.
I love the words….”this is the shadowlands. Reality is being in the presence of God. We are shadowy. We have dark places…sins. We are not living in the fullness of reality. This is not our true home.”
I was honored to sit in on one of your sessions. I continue to take your advice…”Do one thing per day for your book.”
Very helpful news. I’m a C.S. Lewis fan and look forward to viewing the video.
I also found Edie Melson’s May dates helpful for blog ideas!
All interesting articles, though I haven’t gotten to the video yet. I especially appreciate the link to Writers on the Storm re Who Inherits Your Copyrights. I’m not planning to kick the bucket anytime soon, but taking care of our intellectual property is something we all should be thinking about. Thanks!
Thanks for that video. Love that man. When I was first saved, I read just about every Lewis book I could find. I was amazed, towards the end of my reading spree, to find that he and I disagreed on a couple of theological points, because so much of time he was offering ideas to me that I immediately recognized as being true. He was so reasonable and clear when he presented his thoughts. It just about killed me to disagree with him, because I knew he saw far more clearly than I’d ever seen. I still have hope of one day being able to understand him on the issues where we disagree, and of finding myself in agreement with him at the end.
Steve, thanks so much for including Susan Spann’s post on copyrights! All of us at Writers In The Storm appreciate it, and I’m delighted to see that post going to as many writers as possible. 🙂
The Lewis video rocked, thank you! Inspiration to the max.
Minute 13 was my favorite. Here is a quote from the end of it: “C.S Lewis believed that christian imagination could expand our sense of what’s possible… imagination could re-enchant a world that has been disenchanted by the limited possibilities of modern science.”
And in minute 21: “He also models what it is for a faithful christian person to take his gifts and skills and opportunities and sort of parley them into a contribution to culture that is a faithful witness to christian faith”.
