Today we’re talking with Chaplaincy Graduate Randy Lester-Wilson.
1) With the ceremony approaching, what emotions are you feeling?
I am feeling cautious and optimistic, sad and glad, honored and humbled, loved and supported.
2) What is one learning from your Academy experience that you will take with you after graduation?
I have learned what a treasure trove of camaraderie, kavanah, wisdom, and menschlichkeit lies in the hearts, minds, and souls of those affiliated with the Academy.
3) Is there anything you learned at AJRCA that truly surprised you?
4) If you could go back in time and tell your pre-AJRCA self one thing, what would that be?
Take opportunities that present themselves to avail yourself of deeper and richer connections to the Administration, Board, Faculty, and Student Body. These invaluable blessings will sustain you during your time at the seminary and thereafter.
