Grammar, faith, communication…

So, i’ll probably write more about my weekend trip to New York City soon, but first a brief message about grammar.
We took the vertical tour of The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine on the Upper West Side on Saturday, where there are spectacular stained glass works. It’s a huge cathedral, with several bays of windows denoting various professions.
We began on the ground at the medical bay, denoting various healers through the ages (including modern times). i cracked to my girlfriends, all former Orlando Sentinel co-workers, “Where’s the journalism bay?”
Well, the communication bay was next to the medical bay! And it even included linotype and broadcasting!
Even more exciting/hilarious was when we arrived at the top of the education bay. There, the seven liberal arts were depicted. And guess what? Grammar is one of the seven! And it’s depicted with a whip and a sword!
Start at the bottom right of this photo and go up one – there they are! i’m sure my students are feeling the sting, too!
