I was sitting at my computer, organizing upcoming posts while listening to the radio, when The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor aired. I was barely paying attention when he mentioned a young man becoming an atheist when he was 14 and then coming back to the Christian faith in his 30's. I listened in and discovered Garrison was talking about C.S. Lewis. It seems today is his birthday. Who knew? I always commemorate his death, which is easy to remember being the same day JFK was assassinated, but I do not believe I have ever celebrated his birthday with a post. Since NPR has commemorated the day I will follow suite.
Clive Staples Lewis (Jack) born in Belfast today in 1898.
