At Korean dinner, tradition is on the menu

by Frank Buhrman

COLUMBUS, OH - There was no speaker's podium, and no one made any profound remarks, but few of the more than 60 guests at the June 15 Korean Dinner are likely to leave Columbus without fond memories of a General Assembly event.

	Good food and good Christian fellowship were featured during the dinner at the Columbus Korean Presbyterian Church (which worships at Worthington Presbyterian).  More than two dozen church members prepared a lavish Korean buffet and attended to their guests' needs.

	Among the guests were the moderators and other representatives of the Presbyterian Church of Korea and the Presbyterian Church of the Republic of Korea, as well as the executives of four Korean-language presbyteries. All were introduced, but so were many others - virtually everyone, in fact - in keeping with the spirit of the event.

	The Rev. Hyung Choon Yang, pastor of Columbus Korean Church, welcomed the guests and handled many of the introductions. He also recognized his volunteers, who were applauded heartily.

	It was all about Christian fellowship, said the Rev. Sun Bai Kim, associate for Korean Congregational Enhancement in the National Ministries Division of the General Assembly Council. The National Korean Presbyterian Council has sponsored the annual GA-related meeting for many years.

	"It is a tradition," Kim said.
