C.S. Lewis

It recently was the 50th year anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis.


I recently finished re-reading Out of the Silent Planet. For maybe the 4th time.

Those make this post relevant.

I also (only slightly less) recently finished re-reading Mere Christianity. Though, I'm uncertain if I ever completed reading it the first go round.

Also, I receive a daily email from Biblegateway that are devotionals from his body of work (here's that link for you who are interested).

Today's struck me...
On perfection
The command Be ye perfect is not idealistic gas. Nor is it a command to do the impossible. He is going to make us into creatures that can obey that command. He said (in the Bible) that we were “gods” and He is going to make good His words. If we let Him—for we can prevent Him, if we choose—He will make the feeblest and filthiest of us into a god or goddess, a dazzling, radiant, immortal creature, pulsating all through with such energy and joy and wisdom and love as we cannot now imagine, a bright stainless mirror which reflects back to God perfectly (though, of course, on a smaller scale) His own boundless power and delight and goodness. The process will be long and in parts very painful; but that is what we are in for. Nothing less. He meant what He said.
I like the last bit the most...

Sherlock and John visit the Geek Flag

Sherlock and John visited the Geek Flag this week. Posting about Sherlock Legos, the two quibbled with each other on the comments via Google plus. Whoever it was did a pretty good job staying in character. It was a fun breach of the 4th wall... or it really was them and they really exist.

hahahahah I look so funny. XD 
Haha cute
... Is that supposed to be me? 
laughs yes. 
told you you had fans. 
That looks nothing like me. I am offended. 
come on, Sherlock...they just like you. 
that's absolutely adorable! 
But it doesn't look anything like me. 
you're right. the mini figure looks adorable. 
… That was an insult, wasn't it.

I'm not supposed to look adorable. THey have my hair all wrong. 
not exactly...just noticing.

and yeah, the hair's a bit off, but at least you're not the size of a thumbnail! 
Your hight is accurate in reference to mine. And what are those lines on my figure's face? 
cheek bones, dufus. your fans can't get enough of them...even Irene couldn't help but comment. 
.. Oh.
If I remember correctly, you commented about them too.
But honestly, that figurine doesn't create an accurate representation of me at all. 
sighs well then i'll be there to keep up the public's spirits. 
… Alright. 
Hahaha. +Sherlock Holmes have you bought the milk yet? Or did you send Mrs. Hudson to fetch it for you again?
.. I don't do the shopping. 
I do, apparently. 
what were you doing out?
I was looking into something for Lestrade. 
oh. okay. does your back hurt?
I'm sorry, looks sympathetic would you like me to read to you? we could finish Tolkien. 
No, you should rest. 
But i...don't grow heavy
is dreaming in bed
I would buy it, but Sherlock's hair is messed up.
Thank you. +John Watson, see? It is a deciding aspect. It ruins the entire thing.
