First Days

Today was Margaret’s first day at Loyola, which involved her leading a faculty seminar on a recent papal encyclical, and my first day of classes at Duke, which involved an introductory session with my Greek Exegesis of John class. Both of our days involved a lot of walking and, giving the climate in both Durham and Baltimore, a lot of perspiration. My class listened patiently as I sketched my vision of the fitting way to study the Greek text, and they indulged my many eccentricities; Margaret’s report suggests that the Loyola theology faculty participated actively and appreciatively in the discussion she facilitated. We’re both worn out, and both thankful for good starts.
