Erskine Theological Seminary is co-sponsoring, with the C.S. Lewis Institute, An Evening with C.S. Lewis Oct. 12-13, featuring British actor David Payne presenting in character the Life of C.S. Lewis.
“Greenville, South Carolina is now the 13th city in the world to have a C.S. Lewis Institute,” says the Rev. Matt Miller, director of Erskine Seminary’s Greenville extension site, who was recently appointed city director of the C.S. Lewis Institute in Greenville. S.C.
The other 12 cities are all quite large and include London, England, and Washington, D.C.
So how did Greenville get on the list?
“A physician here in Greenville was familiar with the C.S. Lewis Institute in Washington, D.C., and approached Erskine Seminary about helping to launch an Institute here,” Miller explains.
“Although Greenville is a mid-sized city, the upstate of South Carolina—including Anderson and Spartanburg—has around 1.2 million people. The leadership in Washington, D.C. believed that was a large enough base to establish a C.S. Lewis Institute.”
