The rest of the Midwinter conference was a good chance to meet new people and learn more about our denomination. I am also happy to report I made it through the class. I am a bit rusty with studying so I’ve had to scrape off the oxidation!
On Wednesday night, I went out with the Asian Americans to a restaurant called True Food, or something like that. It had a very interesting bathroom. There was a men’s bathroom and a women’s bathroom with toilets, but the sink was outside and shared between the two bathrooms. I did a double take at first because I thought I was in the wrong place. Apparently, other people did too! I guess it makes total sense for men and women to share a sink but we are just so used to having sinks in each bathroom!
I got to meet many Asian pastors from the Covenant. I hardly knew anyone and it was fun to meet them. After that, we had our first “official” meeting as an association. Some names were tossed around but in the end the name was “Covenant Asian Pastors Association” (CAPA). Greg Yee led the meeting and I really appreciated how it was such a community feel of people throwing out suggestions, and also how they really tried to have female representation among the leadership. In fact, our first President is a woman, which is pretty cool. I also managed to land in the Secretary role.
Anyway, the dinner was delicious. I had a buffalo burger, protein style, with yummy kale and sweet potato hash.
It was so good that another group of us went the next day and I had seared ahi sliders. Yummy!
