  1. Thank you for mentioning that quote, it comes from CS Lewis, via Krish Kandiah. For Times subscribers, the full interview with Krish is on my blog at The Times, Articles of Faith. Best wishes, hope you enjoyed the wedding as much as we did here at The Times in London!

      Many thanks for commenting on my blog – I made mention of your interview with Krish on a subsequent blog post.
      I can imagine being in London last Friday was an amazing experience!.`
      One of my parishioners has just told me they subscribe to the Church Times to read your articles – keep up the good work!
      Kind Regards, Paxtonvic
