Chung Hyun-Kyung Quotes

One Quote by: Chung Hyun-Kyung of Union Theological Seminary

Don't bother the Spirit {the Holy Spirit} by calling her all the time. She is working hard with us. {Eighteen times Chung summoned the spirits of the dead who have suffered injustices in the past} and claimed that: without hearing the cries of these spirits, we cannot hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. I hope the presence of all our ancestors' spirits here with us shall not make you uncomfortable. The Holy Spirit was the same as the “image of Kwan In,” {an Asian goddess of compassion and wisdom}. Perhaps this might also be a feminine image of the Christ who is the first born among us, one who goes before and brings others with her.
World Council of Churches Seventh General Assembly. Dated: 7-20th February 1991
