Shadowlands -- a Broadway play, later made into a motion picture -- tells the story of C. S. Lewis and his wife, Joy . . .of their intense love for one another . . .and of the shadow that was cast across their life. Shadowlands portrays their struggle with Joy’s cancer. After Joy’s death, Lewis wrote these words: It is incredible how much happiness, how much joy we sometimes had together after all hope was gone.”


The comfort that is at the heart of those words is also at the heart of Advent. The answers to the paradoxes of living by dying, finding peace out of pain, joy in the midst of sorrow, are found in Advent’s gospel . . . a gospel that holds forth the possibility that we can find the purest joy even in the shadowlands of our lives.
