Supported by the Valparaiso Project this book explores how faith practices work differently in a racial/ethnic community. It is the only book to focus solely on ministry in Korean American churches. The authors identify eight key practices and explain how they are unique to the Korean American church: keeping the day (Sabbath and morning prayer), singing, fervent prayer, resourcing the life cycle, bearing wisdom, life as an oppressed minority, fasting, and nurturing.
