Fall, 2010 Schedule

This just posted to all those on our e-mail list:

Friday, 17 September: "The Joy of Surprised by Joy"
Surprised by Joy is one of Lewis' most beloved books. In it, we learn of how he lost his Christian faith and then later regained it. We also encounter one of Lewis' favourite themes: "joy", that delightful, stabbing pain that points one to the true source of lasting happiness. In this meeting, we will study the nature of this joy, its ubiquity throughout literature, and how it relates, both to Lewis' conversion, and to the colour of his Christian life. As we look into some of his other works, such as Till We Have Faces, Letters to Malcolm, and some of Lewis' poetry, we will find that this theme of joy permeates his writings. Yes, I suspect we'll have more to talk about than we will have time.

Friday 15 October: Our speaker for this month is not going to be able to come. We are in the process of deciding what to do about this meeting.

Friday, 19 November: The Voyage of the Dawntreader
As we anticipate the release of the newest Narnia movie in December, we will spend time talking about this wonderful, beautiful book. We'll enjoy the story together again, while considering the lessons it teaches about the nature of both the world of Narnia and our own. Some time will also be spent reviewing what various authors teach us about the book, such as Michael Ward, Will Vaus, and Jonathan Rogers.

Friday, 17 December: Voyage of the Dawntreader movie debrief
This will be simply a fun meeting to talk about the movie, which will have come out by this time. [It will be] A great way to spend time with fellow Lewis fans as we anticipate the joy of Christmas.

All meetings will start at 7:00 P.M. at the CAMP House, 1427 Williams Street on the Southside.
