During my years as chaplain at Holy Nativity Episcopal School we had Holy Communion at Middle School chapel on Wednesdays. Everyone present, every student, every faculty and staff member, every visiting parent was always invited and welcome to our Eucharist to Taste and See that the Lord is Good. The Hindu students always participated in our celebration and were as much part of our worshiping community as everyone else, enriching the spiritual life of our school. One of the Hindu students told me at the time that they like to mix and blend and take part in the culture around them, and welcome others to share in theirs.
Last week, the Hindu Students Association at Kristen’s college invited other students to enjoy their celebration of the Holi festival of colors. They tossed colored powder and sprayed water, making the colors stick and run. This is my happy college girl at her multicultural school.
