“Channels of Adoration and Shafts of Glory”

Recently I was reading a book that quoted from CS Lewis’ book Letters to Malcolm quite a lot. This week I’ve been reading it and chapter 17 alone is worth the price of the book! Let me quote from Lewis on the subject of worship and adoration, “You first taught me the great principle ‘Begin […]

Longing for Home

When the world seems to be turning upside down I find myself longing for Home more and more.  That longing points us toward the reality of Heaven.  It is a longing that every man and woman has, but not every man and woman finds the proper fulfillment.  Some choose to try to fill that void […]
