Perhaps it may turn out a sang,
Perhaps turn out a sermon.

C.S. Lewis from Theism to Christianity

A dramatization of Lewis' transition from accepting that there is some sort of God to accepting the truth of the Gospel and becoming a Christian:

Also, this is a recording of Lewis himself reading one of his WWII radio addresses, primarily on prayer.

Thanks Mush. Oooo! nice motorbike and sidecar -that had to be what pushed him over the threshold.

Aye, thanks Dwaine. I can imagine C.S. Lewis's addresses were very encouraging during WW2, considering the horrors that were going on, particularly in England.
Then again, Lewis is always encouraging, fascinating, and wise, yet even moreso when you can hear him speak.

I recall getting the same vibes when I listened to a bunch of Thomas Merton tapes back in the early 90's. I went on a two day retreat near St.Martin college that the Nuns were running, and, thankfully, they had many of his tapes there.

Glad you enjoyed.

I usually give credit to Lewis for my own turn, but Merton was an essential precursor for me. They were on the same wavelength.

Add on a sidecar,
Electric guitar.
We'll be a trio,
And Baby make's three, Oh.

Yet another validation of the Trinity.

It's a beautiful and mysterious world, truly.

My bike and sidecar are Russian and I lean Orthodox...

Hmmm, more mystery.

I looked up those lyrics and watches the Motorcycle Mama video.

I had completely forgotten that song.

Thanks for reconnecting the ol' neurons.

I figured that one was before your time.
