NEW MORNING OF THE PASTURE: POETIC REFLECTIONS OF A KOREAN AMERICAN PASTOR is by Rev. Manwoo A. Kim of The First Korean Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia. Rev. Kim is one of the most senior Korean pastors in the Greater Philadelphia area and is a living testimony of the history of the Korean churches in the area. Rev. Kim has served as the chairman of the Pan-Korean Churches Council in Philadelphia, an ecumenical council whose membership includes nearly 100 per cent of the Korean Christian churches in the area. Currently, the Rev. Kim serves as one of the board members of the National Missionary Council of Korean Churches, which includes membership of nearly all the Korean Christian churches in the North America across denominational lines. Rev. Kim brings his experiences and insights to bear in his poetry. He explores Biblical ideas, themes relating to Christian life and holiness, and the life of his church congregation, which he has served as the Senior Pastor since 1979. Rev. Kim's poems will encourage you in your Christian walk and give you a glimpse of the experiences of Korean American Christian brothers and sisters. By reading this book, you will come to understand why Christianity is so vibrant in Korea and among Koreans in the USA.
