Justice, Wholeness, K-Drama and Chi with Grace Ji-Sun Kim (Part 1)

Ilia Delio and Gabi Sloan are joined by Korean theologian Grace Ji-Sun Kim. In part 1, they unpack Grace’s varied experiences with social justice, patriarchy, and technology spanning from Korea to the West and how she has struggled to fit Eastern ideas into her Western education. They discuss the role “wholeness” plays in the new world, and Grace’s plea for planetary solidarity. What must we change to promote a more just planet? 


 “In difficult times, we can only run on hope.”
