Christogram of the Holy Name:

For those, like Conchita, who wish to meditate upon the Holy Name of Jesus...

Thanks for the post on my blog, which admittedly nearly made me spit out my coffee. I'd be interested in hearing sometime how you came to working in Korea, what life-events brought you there. As I prepare for minisrty myself, I get a little apprehensive about the idea of moving to a distant part of my own country, let alone on the other side of the planet. I enjoy hearing other's stories of how they've come to minister where they are.

Feel free to blog that tale sometime if you fancy. Enjoying the rest of your posts, by the way. On an aside, I kicked the smoking habit with a nicotine-patch/nicotine-gum combo with a side order of strep-throat. In reading your experience, I can see how tear-gas would have been substantially more expedient.

Pete, sorry about nearly ruining your caffeine fix.

How I came to Korea? That's a secret, but I'll tell you as long as everybody else agrees to read no further -- hey, Hudson, no peeking!

... After a year (1998/99) in Jerusalem as a Golda Meir Fellow, I found no immediate prospect of a job, so my wife and I returned to Korea, where I had briefly worked for two semesters in Kyungbook National University, Daegu in 1995/96.

I had worked there at that time because I needed a job to tide me over until time to go to Australia and take up a postdoctoral position researching Manichaeism. That kept me busy for 2.5 years

But I suppose that I really came to Korea because I married a Korean woman while I was doing my doctoral research in Germany. We had both received doctoral fellowships from the Friedrich Naumann Foundation and met each other in 1992 at the introductory seminar.

I've blogged on some of this in various posts. I suppose that I need an index...

John E., you certainly went to a lot of trouble to post an advertisement. The dead giveaway is that this post on which you posted is hardly a "Good post" since it's just a photo and makes little sense out of its context (i.e., the previous post) and certainly has nothing to do with Freud's Theory of Dreams.

But since you went to so much trouble, you can stay.

Ah, for the love of a woman. Thankfully my wonderful wife only lived about 45 minutes from where I lived.
