Quote of the Week

Marie-Laure imagines the electromagnetic waves traveling into and out of Michel’s machine, bending around them, just as Etienne used to describe, expect now a thousand times more crisscross the air than when he lived–maybe a million times more. Torrents of text conversations, tides of cell conversations, of television programs, of e-mail, vast networks of fiber and wire interlaced above and beneath the city, passing through buildings, arcing between transmitters in Metro tunnels, between antennas atop buildings, from lampposts with cellular transmitters in them, commercials for Carrefour and Evian and prebaked toaster pastries flashing into space and back to earth again, “I’m going to be late” and “Maybe we should get reservations?” and “Pick up avacados” and “What did he say?” and ten thousand “I miss you”s, fifty thousand “I love you”s, hate mail and appointment reminders and market updates, jewelry ads, coffee ads, furniture ads flying invisibly over the warrens of Paris, over the battlefields and tombs, over the Ardennes, over the Rhine, over Belgium and Denmark, over the scarred and ever-shifting landscapes we call nations. And is it so hard to believe that souls might also travel those paths? That her father and Etienne and Madame Manec and the German boy named Werner Pfennig might harry the sky in flocks, like egrets, like terns, like starlings? That great shuttles of souls might fly about, faded but audible if you listen closely enough? They flow over chimneys, ride the sidewalks, slip through your jacket and shirt and breastbone and lungs, and pass out through the other side, the air a library and the record of every life lived, every sentence spoken, every word transmitted still reverberating within it.”
— Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See

Everything inside of CenterForLit membership is intentionally designed to fulfill one of our three foundational purposes:

  • To equip parents and teachers with the tools they need to feel confident in their ability to lead students into a love and understanding of literature. We already believe you are capable and that God has given you exactly what you need for your task. However, the confidence provided by continued personal training can fill us with peace and rest as we stand before our students.
  • To lighten the burden of a busy teacher or homeschooling parent by providing teaching resources for literary study. Even if you know the method inside and out, sometimes we just need to hold each other's hands up during these crazy days.
  • To provide an oasis of grace for all teachers, parents, and readers. There are so many standards to live up to, so many laws to keep. So often we retreat into our loneliness or put up a pretense of success. There's no need for that here. If there's any theme that is more prominent than any others throughout the Great Books, it is the strength that comes from a community founded on common weakness and failure. By reading and talking together about books, our schools, or even the everyday chaos, may we find that true friendship described by C.S. Lewis: "What? You too? I thought I was the only one!"

When you go to sleep worrying, or wake up anxious about your performance for the day, remember that you are God's beloved and He's got this. There's way less riding on it than it seems. 

All our love,                                                                                     The Andrews
