Remembering James Lee

Honoring the tireless ministry of the  Rev. James Hickson Lee  and his contagious passion for building  intercultural relationships and community;  and in loving memory of James,  our wonderful colleague, beloved friend, loving brother,  and even our “pastor” when we most needed him.

“I now realize…”

(Acts 10:34 NIV) — another Peter’s ‘Aha!’ moment —  posted by Gun Ho Lee, PIN Vice-moderator In the fall of 2002, “Peter” was praying in his study room when he got a call from Professor Syngman Rhee.

O Worship the King

Recently I’ve been able to spend a few weeks worshiping with a congregation that enjoys its cultural diversity.

Deep in Our Hearts

In late July, hundreds of us caught planes, packed cars, and boarded buses to make our way to The Big Tent in Knoxville, Tennessee located on the campus of the University of Tennessee Knoxville.  Our Presbyterian Intercultural Network (PIN) connected to the Big Tent theme this year – “Living Missionally—Advocacy”.  Our preconference, co-sponsored by the Office for Intercultural Ministries and the PIN, began with worship in the beautiful Black Cultural Center.  This space was transformed into a sacred space filled with reminders of our interconnectedness from across the globe.

You’re invited!
