Coffee With: Wing Yi Wong Webinar Replay

What an amazing 30 minutes with our guest Wing Yi Wong at our webinar, Coffee With: Wing Yi Wong! If you missed the chat, here is the replay for you!

It was a blessing to welcome Wing Yi during Asian Heritage Month! Wing Yi, a Ph.D. candidate in Homiletics at Emmanuel College, is also a multi-year recipient of the Foundation’s Elizabeth White Bursary, a longstanding academic support for Chinese students and students of Chinese descent. She is the first generation in her family to pursue higher education and one of the first female homileticians in Hong Kong. Committed to theological education and social justice, Wing Yi has 10+ years of intercultural preaching, teaching, and ministry experience.

In this webinar, Wing Yi shared her latest work (wow, she is busy!) and reflected on her ministry journey.

We are so grateful to Wing for sharing her time with us… put your hand up if you need an encore!

Learning from United Church Camps

Wing Yi has an amazingly creative approach. She explained how her work decolonizes how we interpret God’s word.

“The junction between Hauntology and Post-Colonial Preaching entails an awareness of a non-linear understanding of time and a transgressional perspective of space. By exploring [this] intersection, my goal is to unveil the hidden layers of colonial values that often pervade our societal and religious practices, including preaching.“. And that’s just the beginning of her groundbreaking research!

Further Reading

During Asian Heritage Month, we’re showcasing the Asian and Asian-Canadian people strengthening the church’s intercultural ministry as well as highlighting opportunities to engage with this work.

Don’t forget, Wing Yi’s peer-reviewed article on reaching from a Hauntology and Post-Colonial lens will appear in the upcoming Journal of Homiletics. And here is the short video about the recent retreat Wing Yi co-facilitated with Foundation Board Member Alan Lai. She also includes her email in the webinar if you want to send her a note! Additionally, we congratulate Wing Yi on receiving another Elizabeth White Bursary this spring.

Our “Coffee With” series is a new way of inviting you into the work of various figures across the United Church of Canada. Timely, relevant, and intimate, these half-hour webinar sessions are easy to fit into your lunch hour or coffee break!
