Intern Linqing joined the ULCH community in August 2018 as our pastoral intern. This year is part of her preparations and discernment for pastoral ministry in the ELCA and the final element of her seminary education. She will be doing a variety of pastoral roles from preaching and worship leadership, to teaching, pastoral care, outreach and administration, and is with us fulltime through July 2019. Intern Linqing writes:
My name is Linqing Chu, I came to the U.S. in August 2014, and started school at Luther Seminary in the Fall of 2014. I was born in a city called Zhengzhou in China, as the only one child. When I was about 12 years old I started to go to church with my mom, but I actually found my faith during college.
I love to listen to people’s stories and testimonies, and I’m excited to learn new things. Besides school, I like swimming, reading, watching K-drama (Korean drama), and being with my friends. One more thing I should tell you: I will have lots of questions about the language, American culture, and the Lutheran tradition.
