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.
“But please, please – won’t you – can’t you give me something that will cure Mother?’ Up till then he had been looking at the Lion’s great feet and the huge claws on them; now, in his despair, he looked up at its face. What he saw surprised him as much as anything in his whole life. For the tawny face was bent down near his own and (wonder of wonders) great shining tears stood in the Lion’s eyes. They were such big, bright tears compared with Digory’s own that for a moment he felt as if the Lion must really be sorrier about his Mother than he was himself.
‘My son, my son,’ said Aslan. ‘I know. Grief is great. Only you and I in this land know that yet. Let us be good to one another.”
Bible: Psalm 34:18: http://bible.cc/psalms/34-18.htm
Think: How do you hold onto the fact that God is with us in our times of greatest sorrow?
Pray: We thank you that you are with us in times of sorrow, and pray that we will also look out to be human conduits of that love in times of other’s sorrow.
Action: Check 40Acts for “Love”
