Church is the body of the Christ. The body of the Christ is made of various different parts, all precious but all different.
My journey in this new land started from a small group set up for Korean women by the Lakemba Uniting Church, where I helped as a volunteer.
With learning experiences of isolated and vulnerable pilgrimage people I offered my time and gift to the Christ who used a small gift of my language skill to bridge two cultures, English and Korean. Initially it was not my own voice but bridging two voices. It was small and invisible. My voice became a channel of communication to learn and understand one another. It became my voice. it became visible by building up to bridge the gap.
Speaking your voice starts from giving yourself, your gift and heart to the Christ who is connecting them into his own body.
