Our October, 2016, Meeting

C. S. Lewis had his own "Gethsemane experience." It was during the illness and loss of his wife, Joy, who died in the spring of 1960. Lewis makes this plain to us in his book, Letters to Malcolm.

Lewis speaks elsewhere about issues related to Jesus' prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane as well.

What does he say about the prayer? What intellectual problems did the prayer raise in Lewis' mind and how did he answer them?

At our Thursday, October 20, meeting, we will read what Lewis has to say about Jesus' prayer. We will also view a short video Rev. Beckmann made in Oxford this summer where he addresses in particular Lewis' comments in Letters to Malcolm. You will find Lewis' words both interesting and encouraging. We hope you will join us. 

The Meeting House is located at 3912 Dayton Boulevard in Red Bank.  $5 at the door.

Meetings status

I'm sorry, I've gotten so Facebook-event-page oriented that I failed to announce the September meeting here.  We are planning the October meeting, looking right now at the third Thursday in the month, again at The Meeting House, in Red Bank.  Topic will be "The Anxiety of Hope: C. S. Lewis Comment's on Jesus' Prayer in Gethsemane.  I'll have more info here as soon as things are confirmed.

Long live the True King!
