“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory, and Other Addresses
In this modern world, with our inflated language and heights of “progress”, we have failed to notice the untimely death of wonder. We spend our lives in the endless pursuit of health, wealth and happiness; oblivious to the fact that we have become slaves to our passions and desires!
We have been overcome with busyness. We have conceded to the tyranny of the urgent. And so it is my aim to rekindle wonder. To show what lies beyond the limits of our post-modern prison cells, and to gaze with you – out into the unfathomably deep sky and into the very mind of God.
