“I was waiting for you,” said Gregory. “Might I have a moment’s conversation?”

“Certainly. About what?” asked Syme in a sort of weak wonder.

Gregory struck out with his stick at the lamp-post, and then at the tree. “About this and this,” he cried; “about order and anarchy. There is your precious order, that lean, iron lamp, ugly and barren; and there is anarchy, rich, living, reproducing itself–there is anarchy, splendid in green and gold.”

“All the same,” replied Syme patiently, “just at present you only see the tree by the light of the lamp. I wonder when you would ever see the lamp by the light of the tree.”

…What is a lamp-post doing in a forest in Narnia?
This lamp-post leads Lucy (and later the rest of the children) into Narnia, where they meet Aslan face-to-face and find within themselves the nobility, faith, and bravery to accomplish great things and become kings and queens. As you reflect on your life of faith, what (or who) has been a lamp-post for you, leading you to Christ and helping you to find strength within?

Prince Caspian: Points for Reflection

1) Kingship and authority
The film contains a number of different types of kings. Four in particular highlight different views of kingship. Miraz has falsely taken the throne and selfishly seeks to control the world for his own benefit; Aslan is the true king (whether or not anyone recognises it), and he wants everyone to live in justice and peace; Peter has forgotten
how to be a good king and has lessons to re-learn; Caspian wants to bring justice and peace, but realises that he is not ready to rule – a fact which, according to Aslan, shows that he is.
Caspian: “I don’t think I’m ready”
Aslan: “It’s for that very reason I know you are” (altro…)

Un genetista americano di primo livello (Francis Collins, ex direttore del National Genome Research Institute) parla di fede, ragione e conversione e di C.S. Lewis, sì, quello di Narnia (nella foto):

“As a committed materialist in college, I assumed the physical was all there was,” said Collins, who in 1977 at the age of 27 completed a career change from chemistry to medicine and became a doctor. This, he said, forced him to confront pain and death face-to-face. “That was a dramatic turn for me. The concepts were not hypothetical anymore.” Through encounters with patients, pastors and, finally, by reading “Mere Christianity” by CS Lewis, Collins realised, “I had never really looked at the evidence. Atheism had only been a convenient pathway. I had to decide what was really the truth but I thought that faith and reason were on opposite poles.”  “Mere Christianity” began life as a series of lectures given by Lewis in 1943, and the best-selling book that followed had a profound effect on Collins. “Even in the first few pages, all my arguments about faith just fell apart. It was breathtaking … Lewis remains my best teacher,” he said. Within a year, Collins had become a Christian.
