Greetings, C. S. Lewis fans:
I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas. 2012 is going to be a great year for our local Society. We are especially looking forward to hearing Dr. Wood speak about Lewis and G. K. Chesterton at the annual UTC lecture in March. I'll be sure you have the details when they are available.
As for our regular monthly meetings, we will work our way through Lewis' book The Weight of Glory. The first of these meetings should be on Friday, 27 Jan, at the Camp House, but I'm waiting for them to get back with me to confirm. Be sure to read the first chapter, with the same title as the book, in time for our meeting.
In addition to our monthly meetings, there has been some advocacy for us to renew our men's meetings, which we had years ago. I will have a trial run on this. I'll be at the Honest Pint pub on Friday, 13 Jan., around 6:00 p.m. ready to discuss the first essay of Lewis' book God in the Dock, entitled "Evil and God." I'm thinking that I and those who come will be there for a couple of hours, so late is OK. If you'd like to come to a men's discussion, but cannot make this one, be sure to let me know. The time and place for future meetings is certainly on the table for discussion.
With the first installment of Peter Jackson's new movie, The Hobbit, due for release 14 Dec., we need to have a meeting in the autumn dedicated to Lewis and Tolkien. I'll be working on this and will keep you in touch.
