Mihee Kim-Kort: Making Paper Cranes

 

How has the “myth of the model minority” affected the lives and work of Asian-American women? How is the myth used in our society? Should white male theologians have to claim their context in the same way women and racial/ethnic minorities have? Do the ways in which theology is marketed contribute to an intellectual segregation? Please join us as Mihee Kim-Kort talks about these questions and about her book, Making Paper Cranes: Toward an Asian-American Feminist Theology

J. Herbert Nelson: Gun Violence Prevention

 

After the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, people of faith yearned to respond. The horror highlighted that many children live with fear of guns every day. How can we understand the impact that gun violence has on our country? What can we do to change this culture of violence? What are the greater political and systemic issues that we ought to be aware of?

Derrick and Carol invited J. Herbert Nelson to discuss these issues. J. Herbert started the Liberation Community Presbyterian Church in Memphis, Tennessee. Now he serves as Director of the Office of Public Witness for the Presbyterian Church (USA). And while you’re listening, we invite you to check out this petition, sign it, and distribute it.
