For breakfast, I read Basil of Caesarea’s (4th Century) On the Holy Spirit. This is part of my Lenten discipline this year. After making an apology (in both senses of the word) for attending to the ‘sublte science’ of language, Basil refutes the critics of the Holy Spirit and the Trinity, beating them at their own game of grammer. Basil’s language on the Spirit was definitive for Chalcedonian Orthodoxy.
For lunch I had a dynamic and playful meeting with colleagues and friends on the Values and Purpose Team of Holmes (our Presbyterian Camp and Conference Center in this region).
August and I played after school on the playground – it was a beautiful, warm day here in Westchester. We had a quick snack, returned items to the public library, and then came home to finish homework and share dinner and a short movie. Early to bed.
