Our friend Phuc Luu wrote one of our favorite books this year, Jesus From the East. In this episode, he shares his thinking about how the gospel is not only for sinners but also for the sinned-against. Using the Korean concept of han, Phuc shows us how we lead best when we lead in ways that are not just transactional but deeply human, actively caring for the wounded and vulnerable.
We hope you’ll listen in.
- Jesus saw people in his community as sinners and the sinned-against
- Stopping the cycle of sin by healing the wounds of the sinned-against
- Projecting our brokenness onto others
- The Korean concept of han
- Leaders foster healing and justice by acknowledging and naming injustice and woundedness
