I am so honored to be invited to speak at the New Creations Community event on Embracing The Other with Love: Stop Asian Hate. When I was doing my Ph.D. studies, I worked in the Noah’s Ark Ministry at Celebration Presbyterian Church, Toronto. So thrilled to stay in touch with the beautiful people there and be invited to speak.
We live in a time of great racial strife and global conflict. How do we work toward healing, reconciliation, and justice among all people, regardless of race or gender? In Embracing the Other Grace Ji-Sun Kim demonstrates that it is possible only through God’s Spirit.
Working from a feminist Asian perspective, Kim develops a new constructive global pneumatology that works toward gender and racial-ethnic justice. She draws on concepts from Asian and indigenous cultures to reimagine the divine as “Spirit God” who is restoring shalom in the world. Through the power of Spirit God, Kim says, our brokenness is healed and we can truly love and embrace the Other.
