We had a Korean visitor to Meeting last Sunday, and he mentioned a famous Korean Quaker. Most of us had not known there was a famous Korean Quaker! But this must be who he was referring to: Han Seok-heon. According to the Wikipedia article, he was "an important Asian voice for human rights and non-violence during the 20th century, despite numerous imprisonments for his convictions." I just wanted to pass this along to the community, because it seems important to know more about this important man, and I encourage us all to learn more about him.
