ordinary people

CS Lewis said this in a sermon (which was later turned into a book)

“You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations- these are mortal. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit- immortal horrors or everlasting splendors… next to the blessed sacrament itself, your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses.”

I want to remember this and feel this and communicate this tomorrow morning when I am surrounded by hundreds of people. I’m always so busy on Sunday mornings… I hope I can slow down and make eye contact with some of the everlasting splendors in our high school ministry.
