Headed to Korea for a New Chapter

June 26, 2014

“Sing a new song to the Lord, for he has performed wonders” Psalm 98:1

After serving 10 years as Director of the Duke Divinity School Center for Reconciliation, next week I take on a new title as Duke Divinity School Senior Fellow for Northeast Asia, to focus on the emerging Northeast Asia Reconciliation Initiative I have helped spearhead at Duke.

Then, in early October, my wife Donna and I depart the U.S. to serve a 5-year term with the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) as MCC Country Representatives for Northeast Asia.  We will be based in South Korea, in Chuncheon, near Seoul, and be responsible for MCC’s ministry in China, South Korea, and North Korea, including being in North Korea 3 to 4 times a year.

Why now?  Why MCC?  What will our work be?  And what will happen with the Duke Center for Reconciliation?  For more on our move see my letter Rice New Chapter.
