Thank you for celebrating our basement. Such a basement is never base. However ugly it may appear, that’s the source of our household’s water and heat. All the more so, that’s where the foundations of our house are visible. Not to speak of the home of the mice, who share our house with us. Tillich often thought of God as the Ground of Being. In some lower-case sense, the Hunts Corner basement is the ground of our being. That, for me, is the truth of your photo.
