This June 13-15 in Seattle is the Asian American Ministry Program’s Inaugural Conference. Culture does make a difference in how theology is understood and lived. Theology is not culturally-neutral. This conference is bringing together quite the stellar lineup of Asian American ministry leaders, including: Timothy Tseng, Peter Cha, Charlene Jin Lee, Soong-Chan Rah, Eugene Cho, Ken Fong, Gideon Tsang, Young Lee Hertig, Wayne Ogimachi, Nancy Sugikawa, Paul Kim, Bo Lim, Billy Vo, and more. I’m told it’s more of a regional event, but I see no reason why it can’t be billed as a national event.
By the way, it’s Asian Pacific American heritage month, this month of May, every month of May. Not sure how much of this matters to how many of the 16 million Asian Americans. But I digress…
