Fr. Sparks will present the following workshop at the Anglican Way Institute summer conference.

C.S. Lewis and the Church

Though he was grew up in a religious environment, Lewis was an atheist until his thirties. In this workshop, we look at the influences in his early life and his profession of atheism and his later conversion. We examine Lewis’ spiritual practices, particularly emphasizing his status as an Anglican layman and popular religious author. Material for review includes biographies of Lewis and his own writings. Our purpose is to learn from Lewis’ life and ideas so we better appreciate the Church and the habits of daily worship.
