  • Head of School Update: Monday December 17, 2018

    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents, 

    The virtue of temperance was our focus this month. Temperance is often defined as “saying or doing the right thing at the appropriate time” or the “golden mean” that helps us determine how far we can act on our desires. Unlike the theological virtues, which are gifts from God through grace, the cardinal virtues are the foundation of natural morality and require practice, perseverance, patience, and prayer.

    Three weeks ago, I read the students excerpts from C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, in which the White Witch beguiles Edmond with Turkish Delight.  Edmond’s desires overtake him so powerfully that he continues to choose Turkish Delight, even after he realizes it will enslave him and jeopardize his siblings Lucy, Peter, and Susan. Edmond’s inability to reign in his desires takes his agency away, until Aslan steps in to rescue him.
    The apostle James advises us: “Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath, for a man of wrath does not produce the righteousness of God.” Even though it seems counter-intuitive, restraint can actually guide us to reach our goals. For example, when we compete in sports, our goal is to win. Yet winning requires listening to your coach, playing within the boundaries, and showing consistent sportsmanship. Winning often requires restraint.
