25 March 2013, Republic of Korea

A late start – 10:30 a.m. – when the Rev. Dr. JC Lee arrived to pick me up at the Amour & Symphony Hotel in Suwon. He drove us to Seoul.

IMG_0561We visited the Gyeonbokgung Palace  – the main palace of the Joeson Dynasty. It is magnificent. We also spent a few minutes in the National Folk Museum of Korea, located next door to the palace.

After lunch, we went to the Institute of Doctor of Ministry of the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea. The Rev. Dr. Lee is the Dean of the Institute. I presented on why the Church engages in the public arena.

With two of the Rev. Dr. Lee’s colleagues, we made our way to the Seoul Train Station. As we mounted the stairs to the station, we saw a Bennigan’s Restaurant. “Do you want to eat at Bennigan’s?” asked the Rev. Dr. Lee. I have never said no to him when he has asked me about eating.

The meal ended. We entered the station and bid farewell to the other teachers at the Institute. We made our way to the KTX Bullet Train. We boarded and rode to Jinyoung.

The Rev. Dr. Hyunju Bae, the Rev. Dr. Lee’s wife and the one who extended the invitation to me to visit, met us there. We drove to a traditional Korean house in Gimhae where I am spending the night.

See you along the Trail.
