Carl Harris’ Greek Life

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Lucille and Carl Harris

It was all Greek to Dr. Carl Harris. He taught the classical language at the university level for 40 years, 33 of them at Wake Forest University. Listen as he describes his passion for the Greek language and his insights on the meaning of education in today’s world.

    I greatly enjoyed the clear descriptions of the meaning to a life well lived (rippling effects thru eternity). Thanks for sharing these great insights.

    As a teacher, I especially appreciate the importance of communicating love and care to every student, the ones who do well and the ones who don’t do so well. I also appreciated the importance of saying that we teach students first, not subjects or curriculum.

    Another extraordinary interview. Thank you. Who would imagine that greatness would come through Greek? God, that’s who! Thanks be to God for teachers like Carl Harris. My own dad (C.B.Hastings) had a passion for Greek, and he also taught with heart and soul. This was a soaring reminder of the difference that one teacher can make on a life.
    My cup of thanksgiving is overflowing.
    Thank you.

    Nancy,thanks for the wonderful comment. I’m so glad it resonated with your experience with your dad. Keep the “pistis” – Greek word for faith – don’t you love it!

    Stan, I can’t figure out how to listen to the podcasts. When I click on the title at the top, I just return to this page.
