I am reading the excellent literary biography of C.S. Lewis by Alan Jacobs, “The Narnian: the life and imagination of C.S. Lewis”. Much to recommend about this book, but I was particularly attracted to this comment:
The society that encourages its eccentrics safeguards itself against the worst excesses of tyranny.
Amen to that. May there always be a place for eccentrics (no one particular in mind…) in our society AND in the Church!
