Meet Bishop Hee-Soo Jung: Get Your Spirit in Shape
Born in Korea to parents who practiced Buddhism and Neo-Confucianism, United Methodist Bishop Hee-Soo Jung met a missionary when he was sixteen. The missionary, who was working in a nearby field preparing the land to build a church, told Jung that God loved him. Before the floors were finished in the new church building, Jung was baptized and a lifelong pursuit of building bridges between his faith and his family, between the gospel and culture, between people across faith traditions, had begun.
In this conversation, we talk about those early days as a Christian, what he has learned about building relationships with people of other faith groups, and how he “relaxes” by hiking in the mountains. Join us for this wonderfully powerful conversation as we meet Bishop Hee-Soo Jung of the Wisconsin Episcopal Area.
