I chanced, or better, was led by the Spirit, to read "The Inner Ring" by C.S. Lewis yesterday afternoon. It is in the collection called The Weight of Glory, originally published in 1975, and reprinted in many different editions.

"The Inner Ring" is highly convicting to anyone who has observed that he/she is on the outside of what would seem like an "inner circle" and who wants in. It is even more convicting to anyone who has made any attempt to act on that desire of being "in." It would be the rare American who would not fall into this category; this of course applies to myself. The essay describes how that in any situation that there are probably at least two structures of authority in play - the official structure and the structure built on personal relationship that can oftentimes be highly manipulative.

This is highly recommended reading, along with the titular essay of the collection, "The Weight of Glory." "The Weight of Glory" is the theological basis for "The Great Divorce" and is yet another convicting essay on how one ought to treat others.

Pick these up, read them, and tell me what you think...
