26 March 2013, Republic of Korea

Another late start, 10:00 AM, allowed me to take pictures of the guesthouse where I am spending three nights.

The Rev. Dr. Hyunju Bae picked me up and we drove to Busan Presbyterian University where she teaches. BPU functions as one of the seminaries in the Presbyterian Church of Korea. We had a great conversation with the Rev. Dr. Moo Youl Choi, president of the university.

I preached at the chapel service for the university. Master of Divinity students attended this particular service. Lunch followed in one of the university dining areas.

Hyunju and MarkAfter a quick cup of tea, the Rev. Dr. Bae and I headed off to a meeting of the Busan WCC Preparatory Committee. My presentation to them focused on ecumenism. I shared my experiences as well as some of the ways the Presbyterian Church works ecumenically.

The Rev. Dr. Bae and I then had dinner before I returned to the guesthouse. A good day.

See you along the Trail.

    Thank you for your article. This is a bit of an odd question (sorry). I’m trying to find out if Busan Presbyterian University offers any English lessons to their students. I’m a Christian, and I’ve being working in Busan as an EFL teacher for the last couple of years. I’d love to work at Busan Presbyterian University, but I can’t seem to find an email address, or much information about the University that’s in English.

    Best wishes,
