Christine Lee is the rector of All Angels church in New York City. She is the Episcopal Church’s first Female Korean-American priest. She has more reason than most to feel like the church can feel exclusive, but talks extensively about how she aims to create a community of people that understand and love each other rather than an exclusionary one. Karl Forsyth was an engineer/economist for nearly a decade, then he decided to shift enter the ministry. He is currently planting a church in Adelaide, Australia. He talks about giving hope to those in need, building a community, and the internally-consistent logic of the Bible.
