Courageous Witness: River Bend Presbytery article on visit with Korean partner congregation
River Bend Presbytery is an Affirming ministry in central Saskatchewan. Last fall they sent a delegation to South Korea as part of their many years of mutual work on deepening their relationship with Incheon Presbytery of the United Church of Canada’s global partner, the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea (PROK). They met with the SumDol Hyanglin Church, one of the very few congregations in the PROK to fully welcome gender and sexual minorities. Rev. Laura Fouhse’s shares the story of this courageous congregation here; read a very sobering overview of LGBTQ+ rights in South Korea here.
