Author and minister Mihee Kim-Kort talks about her book “Outside the Lines”, and embracing her own queerness. Mihee discusses how queerness is “magic”, how it made her marriage complicated and rich, and why the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman inspires her. (Intro: Get In!)
Mihee Kim-Kort is an ordained Presbyterian (PCUSA) minister with degrees in divinity and theology from Princeton Theological Seminary, and English Literature and Religious Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She is currently a PhD student in Religious Studies at Indiana University, while also juggling various jobs including being a wife to another Presbyterian minister, raising three children, itinerant preaching and speaking, and writing. Born in Seoul, Korea, she and her parents immigrated here shortly after her birth. Settling in Colorado, she was baptized in a Methodist church before her family joined the local Korean Presbyterian (PCUSA) church. Mihee loves all things Church, and believes in what God is doing in and through it despite the huge failings and egos that plague the all-too-human institution. But, because it was born out of the margins where God’s spirit has always moved and been present she is doing everything she can to see it and help others to feel it, too.
