“If you dip into any college, or school, or parish, or family—anything you like—at a given point in its history, you always find that there was a time before that point when there was more elbow room and contrasts weren’t quite so sharp; and that there’s going to be a time after that point when there is even less room for indecision and choices are even more momentous. Good is always getting better and bad is always getting worse: the possibilities of even apparent neutrality are always diminishing. The whole thing is sorting itself out all the time, coming to a point, getting sharper and harder.”
CS Lewis, from That Hideous Strength
From the Chapter Entitled: Chapter 13:
They Have Pulled Down Deep Heaven on Their Heads
Thanks to my friend Rev. Steve Felton, of Vineyard Christian Fellowship in Santa Maria, CA for mining this gem.
