Learning how to use chopsticks

Today I ate breakfast with Jose and Terry in the hotel cafeteria. Terry showed me how to use chopsticks. I had previously avoided using chopsticks because I thought that it was too hard to learn. Well…it is hard. Still, I managed to eat a small plate of rice before exiting to write this blog. During the process of eating the rice my hand began to cramp. I also had to analyze and adjust how I was approaching my task. By the end of the experience I had created my own technique for using chopsticks and was extremely proud of myself for trying something new. Humbly, I admit I still have much more to learn; that’s fine with me.

This experience is directly correlated to my Christian walk…..

I thank God for keeping me, for loving me, and for teaching me. Thank you God for your love through the process of life.

My Experience:

Joshua Smith


“The vocation of the “pastor-theologian” is one that appeals deeply to my personal sense of calling. I have never felt particularly gifted as a “shepherd pastor,” or a “CEO pastor,” but have always had an abiding spiritual curiosity that has led me to seek God both intellectually and in community. Working on a Master of Arts in Theological Studies degree at Central gave me the valuable freedom to explore theology and biblical studies more deeply than I could have imagined. I not only learned how to conduct research in my field of New Testament studies, but I learned how to better form my own questions in search of answers. Central helped me to realize my own vision of making biblical scholarship accessible to the local parish, a vision that I hope to carry well into my future.”
