Study Leave – July 17-26, 2015

C. S. Lewis Home
Oxford, UK

This Spring I had been considering registering for the C. S. Lewis Summer Seminar, sponsored by the C. S. Lewis Foundation – Redlands, CA. Our long acquaintance with Stan Mattson (director of the Foundation) and his vision for the Kilns bred a deep interest in studying there. The opportunity to be with Earl was equally important.

Miriam’s encouragement sealed the deal and I enrolled for the second week with high anticipation.
