“I agree Technology is per se neutral: but a race devoted to the increase of its own power by technology with complete indifference to ethics does seem to me a cancer in the Universe. Certainly if he goes on his present course much further man can not be trusted with …

It’s curious how time itself is celebrated each new year. We often observe moments in time and hallmark them as memories, the birth of a child or a particular tradition, for example. But time is never more centrally celebrated–worldwide–than during New Year’s Eve and Day.

In his essay “God in the Dock,” Lewis talks through several difficulties,  or surprises, in “trying to present the Christian Faith to modern unbelievers.” At the start of a new school year, I’m also reminded of such challenges.
