Grace Ji-Sun Kim – Reconciliation, Climate Justice, Han, & Intercultural Ministry
“Reconciliation is work that intersects with gender justice, climate justice, and racial justice” In this interview Liam sat down with Grace Ji-Sun Kim to talk about her involvement with the Duke Divinity School Summer Institute of Reconciliation.
We chat about reconciliation from a variety of angles: racial reconciliation (and some of the trap falls that can be encountered), climate justice and how the concept of Han can assist in how we advocate against the unjust suffering of the earth, Intercultural Ministry (and her new edited work on the topic), power imbalances in calls for and practices of reconciliation, and (less related, but still fascinating) what it’s like to write a book on the Spirit for the Homebrewed Christianity.
