Each day we will select an extract from the Narnia novels, The Screwtape Letters or Mere Christianity, combined with a Bible passage (not necessarily restricted to Luke’s gospel), something to think about, a prayer, and an action (usually from @40Acts).
We’d love it, if you’re blogging, that you draw attention to other resources online that we can also connect with.
“Aslan is a lion- the Lion, the great Lion.” “Ooh” said Susan. “I’d thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion”…”Safe?” said Mr Beaver …”Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”
Bible: Hosea 11:10 http://bible.cc/hosea/11-10.htm
Think: How do you feel at the idea that Aslan/God isn’t “safe/tame”?
Pray: We thank you that you are not a ‘wimpy’ God, subject to our rules and ideas, but that you are strong, powerful and very much ‘not tame’.
Action: Check 40Acts for “Buy Fairtrade”
