Sue Park-Hur is a Korean American born in Seoul, but raised in Los Angeles since she was eight. One of the pivotal points in her life was witnessing the Rodney King Riots in LA while she was a sophomore at UCLA. The racial, social, and economic tensions in the city were cries for the work of reconciliation. This experience helped Sue to understand the crucial role the church can play in the work of God reconciling the world to Himself. Afterward, Sue completed her Masters degree at Wheaton College, where she studied spiritual formation and intercultural studies.
In this interview, Sue and I discuss the ways our stories shape our identity and our identity shapes our mission. Sue shares her experience as a Korean-American and offers welcome encouragement for those of us wondering how we will persist in the face of constant injustice.
