The Lines Along Which Our Spirits Live

“Authority exercised with humility and obedience accepted with delight are the very lines along which our spirits live.”

C.S. Lewis

  1. “That Hideous Strength,” I’m guessing? Or certainly a theme woven into “That Hideous Strength.”

  2. Authority exercised with humility is a critical spiritual gift. Obedience…well, let’s just say I prefer the word “surrender” because it has a better connotation: where obedience can lead to a blind rationalisation of evils such as the Holocaust and Apartheid (I obeyed), surrender implies a conscious choice.

    A great quote!
