A marvelous show! Well staged. Well played. A wonderful evening.

We Meet Again Tour – 26 May 2018

IMG-7450Tricia came to town to join the tour over the Memorial Day weekend, arriving on Thursday, May 24. Friday was a work day that did bring a walk in Riverside Park. See the past several posts for photos of purple flowers.

Saturday morning, we volunteered with First Presbyterian Church of Whitestone at The Father’s Heart soup kitchen and food pantry. We met Sean for lunch. And, after a nap, we took the D Train to Yankee Stadium. We met Don Jang and Krystin Granberg for an amazing meal at the Audi Club buffet and great seats. Mike Trout had a five hit game and the Angels won.

Seeing myself in the eyes of a North Korean

Grace Ji-Sun Kim on pursuing peace on the Korean Peninsula.
“But peace won’t come if we remain afraid. It’s hard to overcome the kind of prejudice and cultural bigotry that perpetuates a vicious cycle of fear and hatred across generations. I experienced how hard it can be as I prepared to meet with Ambassador Jang. But when I saw myself in him, I was able to see both of us as reflections of God’s love for the world. This moment was the beginning of a fruitful conversation. Embracing our neighbors is not a voluntary act but something that God requires of us. Why are we afraid?”
