A number of my colleagues have thought about how we are needing some kind of network or some way to connect US Presbyterians to peace work going on throughout the Korean peninsula. I am especially interested in an effective way to create a network that might be easily mobilized in connection to the peace movement activities of our partner in the National Council of Churches in Korea (NCCK) and their Reconciliation and Reunification Committee. For example, when our Peace Treaty Campaign has some activity or is asking people to write letters to US government representatives we could easily connect people to those actions alerts. We are open to other suggestions and visions. This network will likely connect to PC(USA) World Mission as a mission network and maybe also the PC(USA) Peacemaking Program as a kind of action network. We are exploring possibilities.

I am also dreaming about one day setting up some Peacemaking Travel Study Seminars to Korea that could connect US Americans to Koreans working for peace throughout South Korea (at least for now). That could be based on a workshop I helped the NCCK create in 2015.

Room and board at Stony Point will be covered by the Korean Mission of the PC(USA). We have spots for 10 people. We are unable to cover travel to Stony Point, unfortunately. Details of the schedule will be posted soon, we hope.

If you are able to join us for that one night in October, please email Kurt at kurt.pcusa.ncck {at} gmail.com. Also email any inquiries and we can talk about times for arrival or departure as well. If you cannot make the event but you would still like to join the network for future actions you may email that request as well!

Hope to see you there to help us dream of peace in Korea!
