Madeline L'Engle

This is lifted from Radical Congruency. I've never read this lady but it now looks to me like I should.

The ever-wonderful Madeline L’Engle passed away on Thursday. She was 88.

I grew up reading, and loving, the Wrinkle in Time books. She was a beautiful soul.

“Why does anybody tell a story? [It has] something to do with faith - faith that the universe has meaning, that our little human lives are not irrelevant, that what we choose or say or do matters, matters cosmically.”

May her memory be eternal.

If you have ever read the fiction of C. S. Lewis, or his mentor George McDonald, you will enjoy L'Engle.

Hi Carisse. Well, I read Mere Christianity many many years ago. Yes, it was late summer 1972 after we had graduated. But that is it for me and Lewis. So much to read and so little time.
