Growing up, I never heard a word about God laughing, joking, or doing anything for fun.
I’ve been reading the Chronicles of Narnia to my daughter at bedtime. As a kid I only read as far as The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; the endless shelf of Babysitter’s Club books distracted me from the Narnians. We’re on The Silver Chair now, and while I’m still not sure about that Jill Pole, I continue to marvel at C. S. Lewis’s masterful Christian allegories. I’ve always loved Aslan, but I am newly convinced that the lion really does capture the essence of Christ.
