It was certainly a 'long,cold, lonely winter'. Sub zero temperatures for weeks on end. The chilling news
of mounting Covid deaths. But now we're well into spring. The trees are in
blossom. Bluebells carpet local woodlands. The days are warmer and evenings
lighter. Last time I checked the UK had the lowest Covid infection rates in the
G7. Here comes the sun. Brighter times are ahead.
In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe C. S. Lewis depicts Narnia under the rule of the White Witch, where it was 'always winter and never Christmas'. Then suddenly the ice begins to melt. Aslan is on the move. In The Chronicles of Narnia the majestic lion is depicted as a Christ-figure. Aslan was willing to die in the place of the traitor, Edmund Pevensey. He then rose again to lead the rebellion against the White Witch’s reign of terror.
