Davis and Mt. Vernon Presbyterian Meet Again

This fall, Davis 5th graders welcomed their peers from Mt. Vernon Presbyterian School to our Sukkah. It was a wonderful day. This week, MVP invited us to their home. Instead of learning about Sukkot and eating lunch in the Sukkah, we attended chapel services, studied the important topic of hunger in America, enjoyed their athletic field, and saw their students perform a play entitled, "Way of the Cross" that tells the story of Jesus' last days and Easter.

Davis and MVP kids share much in common. They both have a strong foundation in their religious traditions and heritage. They both are eager to connect with peers of different traditions and backgrounds. They both want to explore how they can make the world a better place.

Here are some pictures and tweets from our visit. One fun highlight was when Davis kids were spontaneously invited to sing "Not by Might" during the Chapel service after seeing this Biblical passage in one of the slides that a teacher shared of her service trip to Zambia.
