The Reverend Dr. Nathaniel (“Nate”) Jung-Chul Lee returns to the All Angels pulpit August 6 and 13
The Rev. Dr. Nathaniel (“Nate”) Jung-Chul Lee is Associate Rector of St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Nate is a priest with seventeen years of ministry experience in diverse contexts across the country. Working with people of all ages, from a variety of demographic backgrounds, Nate is especially passionate about helping foster conversations between churches and their surrounding communities, and breaking down the walls between them. Nate has also pursued this work in a variety of academic contexts, as both a seminary and university professor. During Divinity School at Duke University, Nate worked closely with Professor Stanley Hauerwas on two books, the first a critique American exceptionalism, especially as exemplified in its militarism; and the second, a exploration of how Christian identity is translated into diverse cultural contexts. His recently completed Ph.D. dissertation utilizes the identity of Christ as Divine Word for a constructive response to questions of racial justice and reconciliation. His two boys, Ezekiel Sang-Hun (6), and Malachi Sang-Wu (3) are his north star, and the best of him
