Xin nian kuai le!  That is roughly "Happy New Year" in the pinyin version of Chinese.  This is the week of the Lunar New Year.  So many of our families and nearly all of our international guest students celebrate this time of year with the traditions of their families' "heritage countries".  I encourage you to find some festivities around town, eat "Asian" food, and do a quick Internet search about some of the traditions associated with this holiday.  It's a great way to engage our students with a broader world community.

Following various conversations over the course of this school year, I propose we do a little more with regard to studying about our Zion Family and our combined ethnic/racial/nationality traditions.  We could celebrate or at least acknowledge different festivals and holidays and consider ways they tie in with our life in Christ.  Knowing a LITTLE about the wonderful variety of people in this world can have a BIG impact on how we interact with the unfamiliar.  God has wonderful ways of connecting us with people so they can know Him a little more...through us.  What a great opportunity.

Here's to great learning!
