The demonstration did not feel collaborative at all.
Most of us had not spoken with any indigenous elders before the day of action — a glaring red flag.
By joining with our own conception of solidarity, and with our own ethnocentric ideals and end goals, we were inevitably co-opting the whole movement.
When Christianity Co-Opts Justice Movements – By Dae Shik Kim Hawkins, Jr.
But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
Jesus replied, “A video of a black man was posted on social media, dying at the hands of the police…”
And Who is My Neighbor? – By Minwoo Kim
Through every season of life, will I be willing to continue walking with them, even though it may not be the greatest of circumstances?
Overall, my time in this internship was amazing and I look forward to what God has in store next.
Intern Story – Danny Kim
Connecting Disciples of Jesus Christ to Transform the World
From the very first time Jesus sent out disciples to minister in His name, he sent them out tethered to other disciples (Mark 6:7).
We, at Nexus, have a core conviction that ministry was not meant to be done on our own.
Standing in the Wesleyan tradition, and confirming the Methodist emphasis of connectionalism, Nexus UMC is a ministry that seeks to connect the English-speaking disciples of Jesus Christ, who are of Korean descent and/or serve the Korean United Methodist Church.
We desire to network with one another and with our denomination not only for our mutual edification, but also for the world’s transformation, because we realize that there are things we can only do, or do better, together.
We desire to encourage the members, the ministers, and the missionaries within our denomination through our biennial convocation, regional networks, and our website.
We ask not only for your prayers and support, we we also ask that you check back with our website on a regular basis and see what’s happening in our network, read a devotion, listen to a sermon, or connect with a friend!
