C.S. Lewis, Eagle and Child

Lunch with the Archbishop of Georgia (separated from Russia), was a learning experience. This restaurant, Eagle and Child, between the years 1939 - 1962, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, and
others, met every Tuesday morning in the back room (where we sat to have our lunch). This

was considered their favorite pub. This is where they would discuss the books they were writing and have a pint.
The Archbishop is working on his PhD through OCMS (Oxford Centre for Mission Studies). He asks us to pray for his country.
