It was a joy to preach at Knox College!
The last time I preached at Knox College was 27 years ago when the senior class preached during the last semester before graduation.
I preached on how we are all created in the image of God and this will make all the difference in the world.
It was wonderful to take a picture with some of the faculty! Some familiar faces, one former student who is now teaching and some new faculty.
It was great to do a book signing!
Thank you Knox College for the warm welcome. It was a great homecoming…
Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim Lecture — Invisible: Towards A Theology of Visibility
September 23 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
“Invisible: Towards A Theology of Visibility.”
Invisibility persists throughout the Asian North American story. On the one hand, xenophobia has long contributed to racism and discrimination toward Asian Americans. On the other hand, terms such as perpetual foreigner and honorific whites have been thrust upon Asian Americans, minimizing their plight with racism, and erasing their experience as racial minorities. Invisibility is not only a racial and cultural issue, but also a profound spiritual issue. The Western church—and its theology—has historically obscured the concerns of Asian North Americans. Their experiences provide a window to understand how other groups and individuals are also made invisible and marginalized. This lecture will explore Invisibility as a theological and spiritual concept and see how we can work towards inclusion, liberation and embrace through a Theology of Visibility.
The in-person lecture by Dr. Kim will be followed by a reception and book signing.
