In between

In shock, still processing,
Giving thanks for the life and love and faith and witness of Robina Winbush … for her vision of what the Church could be and her work to help us live into that vision …for her commitment and work for justice.
Grieving with Robina’s family, friends, colleagues in the Office of the General Assembly and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and ecumenical and interfaith partners.
Grateful to have been Robina’s colleague and to have learned from her and to have been guided and shaped by her.
We come from dust; we return to dust.
And in between … Robina Winbush made such a difference.
Thanks be to God.

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.
