|C. S. Lewis
For several weeks now i have been reading the book “Mere Christianity
” and posting on one chapter at a time, along with a few other people. I link my post on, Wednesdays, with the rest of the group, at the blog of the host. And i usually read the other posts. I have never been to book club in a friend’s living room, where the people meet and discuss books together and eat chips or little vegetable sticks. This book club is different. This particular, on-line, book reading group has readers that take something away from each chapter and then allows that to give-way to creative expression. There are posts such as poems and personal stories which allows the writing to take on another layer of interest. And i really like seeing everyone’s unique ways of thinking, writing and relating.
…We have just finished reading the chapter titled “Time and Beyond Time.” Where the main focus is on one of the attributes of God. This one being, omnipresence, or being present everywhere at the same time. Time meaning what humans live in, and what God does not live in. We live one moment at a time. The author, C. S. Lewis, says this, “If you picture Time as a straight line along which we have to travel, then you must picture God as the whole page on which the line is drawn.” Of course we have to think of things like a line on paper, in our human mind, because we can’t even start to imagine life without time or seeing all time or being in all time. No matter. For, even though i am an expert on time travel, because i watch Dr. Who, i don’t really need to know how God does what He does. All i need know is that i Love the Lord and He loves me, and that He is with me always.
Our link hosts are Jason Stasyszen
and Sarah Salter
. The links have been at one host one week, and the other host the next week. They like to trade off and share the load. I always forget who is gathering the links on which week, but they seem to be able to keep it straight. ..
