During Carroll University’s Alternative Spring Break, made possible through the Presbytery’s generosity, 12 undergraduate students, University Chaplain Elizabeth McCord, and a staff member witnessed the breadth of both poverty and wealth in the San Francisco Bay Area and the resulting food and housing insecurity. But the most profound element of the trip was how the Holy Spirit wove together compelling conversations on race within our diverse group. Students noticed how engagement across race and culture varies, and they reflected on the limits of the Euro-centric context of Waukesha. Our Euro-American students found themselves relying on cultural translation from some of our African American students, and other students of color communicated openly and honestly about the freedom they felt being in a place with more people who look like them. These meaningful conversations spilled over into dinner-table discussions with our hosts and were undoubtedly among the students’ greatest takeaways.
