We all know that one of the greatest ways to connect with each other is over food. Today at 12:30 p.m. in Scott Lounge the Center for Anglican Communion Studies will gather those who participated in Cross-Cultural Education Programs (CCEPs) in January to share stories of their learnings and to answer questions from those who are interested in next year’s opportunities. And, here’s the hook: the stories will be accompanied by delicious desserts representing the destinations to which students traveled - Oman, Jerusalem, Italy, and India.
In Window One of the 2023 Strategic Plan, it states, “The Center for Anglican Communion Studies will continue to develop the Cross-Cultural Education Programs (CCEPs) to ensure a more globally and culturally aware student body.” The CCEP in Oman was new this year, and the CCEP in Rome was innovative in that it was a collaboration between VTS, Nashotah House, and the Living Church. CACS is indeed living into their mandate to help provide a global education experience at VTS, and what better way to engage with that than over the globally diverse sweets that the talented staff of Meriwether Godsey have promised. If abstaining from sugar was part of your Lenten discipline, then at least come to feast on the richness of stories!
