Quote of the Week

He has immeasurable use for each thing that is made, that His love and splendour may flow forth like a strong river which has need of a great watercourse and fills alike the deep pools and the little crannies, that are filled equally and remain unequal; and when it has filled them brim full it flows over and makes new channels. We also have need beyond measure of all that He has made. Love me, my brothers, for I am infinitely necessary to you and for your delight I was made. Blessed be He!
He has no need at all of anything that is made. An eldil is not more needful to Him that a grain of the Dust: a peopled world no more needful than a world that is empty: but all needless alike, and what all add to Him is nothing. We also have no need of anything that is made. Love me, my brothers, for I am infinitely superfluous, and your love shall be like His, born neither of your need nor of my deserving, but a plain bounty. Blessed be He!
— Perelandra by C.S. Lewis

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 believe you are already capable and that God has given you exactly what you need for your task. However, the confidence provided by continued 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 a theme 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
