Abstract
The life of Korean-Americans is of permanent travelers, and it is a life where they are abandoned by mainstream society and driven to its margins, where they are forced to exist. The marginal person comes to feel a sense of alienation and isolation. It is a pain endured from the deepest depths of humanity. No one can live without receiving recognition and acceptance. After all, people are social beings. They cannot take pride as human beings without gaining societal respect and without being given a personality in that society. Without the pride of self, they cannot play a legitimate role as creative human beings participating in history. The Korean immigrant churches are communities that the majority of such Korean-American have been gathered as marginal person. Therefore, most Korean immigrant churches have lots of disunion problems. The authoritarian, patriarchal system of the Korean immigrant church creates an especially serious alienation and isolation problem for Korean women. It is an isolation they experience on many occasions even in a system of religion where freedom, equality and sharing of Jesus' love is emphasized. The alienation in their own church, a community of love and comfort, only adds to the overall estrangement they feel as marginal persons in a foreign land. And so there exists a double alienation, rather than a loving community where women should be comforted and protected from external inequities. It is women who are predominant in the Korean church and form a strong axis of growth. Yet it is the male who dominates. If Korean women were given a positive opportunity by being allowed to display their distinctive, individual characteristics and to utilize their wide variety of gifts and roles, women would not only grow in quality and stature, but so would the whole church.
