Intro   0:00
Hello and welcome to The Weight of Glory podcast. My name is Clayton Emmer.

Some 25 years ago, I ran into this remarkable essay by C.S. Lewis entitled The Weight of Glory, and it became the title of my blog many years ago. And when I recently decided to relaunch my audio podcast, I decided to make it the title of that as well.

One of the central ideas of the essay is that our every encounter might lead someone toward beatitude or away from it: Something that C.S. Lewis speaks of as "the weight of my neighbor's glory."
 
So without much further explanation, I'd like this first episode to be simply a chance for you to hear the essay out loud. I also have a copy of the essay on my blog, which is doxaweb.blog

So without further ado, here's the essay by C.S. Lewis.
