Signs of diversity on a college campus

On a recent college visit I discovered signs of diversity on the posters at the Carleton College's Skinner Memorial Chapel .  The following opportunities were posted on the bulletin board...
Skinner Memorial Chapel
Carlton College

Chapel Banners
  • Torah through A Rabbinic Lens
  • Interfaith Social Action - live love, make change
  • Bhagavad Gita - Study and dicussion group
  • Shabbat Services
  • Mindful Eating - The Mind, Body, Spirit series
  • Make the time for quiet - Centering Prayer
  • Buddhist Meditation
  • Qur'an Study and Muslim Discussion
  • Compline Services - A short, simple service of evening prayer from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer
Carlton is the third oldest college in Minnesota, having started in 1866 by the General Conference of the Congregational Churches of Minnesota.  The college is now non-denominational with no religious ties. Interest in understanding other cultures and religion was also evidenced in his trimester's most popular class on Taoism.
