Shawn Smith, Registrar, loves church history. He professes that “the faithfulness of those in the past 2,000 years strengthens my faith.” He also embraces the present and the future, encouraging students with these words: “You have the opportunity to draw upon the wisdom of the past and highlight the blind spots in our present time and culture.” In addition to running, playing guitar, reading, and listening to music, Smith likes to write. He is currently partnering with an illustrator on a potential children’s book about St. Aidan of Lindisfarne. His son is named after the 7th-century Celtic missionary to Northern England.
“By studying church history, you can engage diverse topics: history, theology, philosophy, and Biblical interpretation. The faithfulness of those in the past 2,000 years strengthens my faith.”Shawn Smith, Registrar, Professor
