Lydia Kim – Korean Chapter Secretary
Translated by Russ Feldmeier, MM – MA Board Member
Ten members of the Korean Chapter gathered at the Maryknoll Sisters’ house in Seoul on June 11, 2016.
We began with a sharing on the Sunday readings for that week, as well as on our activities for the past month. There are many tragic issues in society these days, which demonstrate a lack of concern for others and a marginalization of many people. In particular, we spoke about criticism and indifference towards others, the inability in daily life to overcome prejudices, and the frustration that in such circumstances we are often unable to find the true way to respond. In addition, we reflected upon the reality of many women who suffer from social structures that continue to discriminate against women. The sharing was an opportunity to look at how we as believers can respond to the issues we are faced with.
We usually meet monthly, but due to summer vacations, our next meeting was on August 27, 2016 when we gathered for a day-long retreat.
