The impossible reality

imposible reality

As the holidays start this week I’m reminded of some comments by C S Lewis worth reflecting on as we continue our series on ‘What is heaven like?’

“In my first school we believed in the end of term, but it seemed far off and of little consequence compared with tomorrows algebra exam.  As talk of glory seems little comfort to a man who suspects he has cancer. The horrors of boarding school made the joys of home seem far off and escapist, there must be in the world a place where you had comfortable clothes, good food and warm beds, but it seemed an impossible reality. And yet the end of term came.”
C S Lewis ‘Present Concerns’ p23
