“A few months before his death on November 22, 1963,
this brilliant thinker [C. S. Lewis],
greatly used by the Spirit to lead many seekers
to the house of the Father, wrote,
‘Think of yourself just as a seed
patiently waiting in the earth,
waiting to come up a flower
in the Gardener's good time,
up into the real world, the real waking.
I suppose that our whole present life,
looked back from there,
will seem only a drowsy half-waking.
We are here in the land of dreams.
But cockcrow [dawn] is coming...’
I pray that the writings of this unique Christian
will continue to challenge many
in this age of despair and doubt.”
- Johan D. Tangelder
