Life, the Universe and Everything

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
-C. S. Lewis

Good quote. There is a student here in the program that uses that as a signature. I heard he got a little flak for it from another student, but I think it is a good way to picture faith in everyday life.

That student was one of mine last semester. The response he got from multiple students for using that quote in his e-mail was both shocking and sad. What was hard about it was that he said he got into this profession to help people and his faith, the thing which inspired and inspires him to keep going, it the thing that ends up distancing him from the people he is wanting to help.
