Abstract
This project combines practical suggestions for developing interdependent relationships in the Korean American church using theology, education, psychology, and biblical and cultural studies that is rooted in the creation spirituality of Matthew Fox. The first part of the project is based on library research. The second is interviewing and analyzing other pastors in the Korean American church and congregation. Because of conflicts and splits, the Korean American church is unhealthy and too weak to lead society and young people despite the church's great growth. Both pastors and congregations need to renew their understanding of the relationships that cause conflicts and splits leading to a spiritual maturity and the idea of a vital community. The Korean American church must practice new spirituality initiating and sustaining interdependent relationships internally and externally. This project proposed that this can be accomplished through creation-spirituality practices offered by Matthew Fox.
