C.S. Lewis “The Screwtape Letters”. Lewis wrote The Screwtape Letters during WWII. The current global crisis provides a very similar point of reference to view the letters and the human condition.
We will be listening to and discussing the first 8 to 10 letters written by a “Senior Demon” as he coaches his apprentice on the corruption of a human. Among other topics, the letters address Reason & Reality, Relationships, Troughs and Peaks, and Sincere Prayer. We will listen to an audio recording of each letter, however, it is recommended to have a copy of the book for maximum benefit. E-copies are available ranging from free to $1.99 (Kindle, Kobo, etc.) and print books are available ranging from $10 and up from Amazon, Chapters, etc. (During the COVID lockdown, on-line ordering with pick up curb service is still available at Chapters). Please contact the office to register by January 4th. The relevant Scripture references and the virtual meeting link will be emailed to you in advance of January 6.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving
we give you humble and hearty thanks
for all your goodness and loving-kindness
to us and to all whom you have made.
We bless you for our creation, preservation,
and all the blessings of this life;
but above all for your immeasurable love
in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies,
that with truly thankful hearts
we may show forth your praise,
not only with our lips, but in our lives,
by giving up ourselves to your service,
and by walking before you
in holiness and righteousness all our days;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honour and glory throughout all ages.
