People have been thinking about God forever. But, for a long time, only certain people’s voices were listened to, especially within Western Christianity. European men had a lot of good things to say (and some bad things!) But the voices of others were often silenced.

A Different Lens:

In our “Different Lens” worship, we listen to some of these voices once a month on the third Sunday. This month, we learn from Pastor Jenny Sung, who serves St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, and it’s mission development, the Depot Church. You can also find her out in the streets with neighbors when necessary, and knocking on doors in places like Brooklyn Center to ask people what they need when their neighborhood is filled with uprisings and National Guard troops.

A Little about Rev. Jenny Sung:

Jenny holds all things with  an abundance of grace, including  all her identities, which include but are not limited to being an adopted Korean woman preacher, dancer, and writer. A little about Jenny’s story in her own words:
“At the age of two, I was abandoned on a bus in Seoul Korea. I was brought to the police station,  an orphanage, and later into foster care before being adopted into America.  When sharing my story I have found that it isn’t just my story. Many people have narratives of loss,  feeling forgotten or thrown away.  And I realized that although that is the story the world tells us, I have faith in a God who does not believe humans are disposable. As that narrative took hold I began to realize my story isn’t one of being thrown away but delivered!”
