If you are a storyteller, pull up a seat and 'set a spell' with Joon Han.
Joon, a Korean man here in the US since 1981 and who visits our clinic for medical services, frequently helps out in the New Life Food or Clothing Pantry. When asked about his favorite memories he says, "My favorite memory? A good story!" Especially stories where he can, like a good 'method actor', explore the motivations of a character. He says he'd like to tell stories on film about why people do what they do.
Joon says he once made a 8-mm movie, a kind of love story, as an independent film many years ago, but he couldn't get it shopped around to an outlet for showing. But that hasn't stopped him from thinking, dreaming about, and creating stories.
Stories are good ways to help us explore ourselves or life around us when things haven't been good, or family is distant. And times have often been rough for Joon in his family. Joon says if he had a notebook computer and some 'space', as in office space, he'd like to write stories for 'popcorn movies' - mystery thrillers and movies that have great motives in their story lines.
Come chat with Joon sometime and listen to more about his creative side. Maybe you could help Joon explore God's motive in His love for us by creatively telling him Gospel stories - I'm sure you have your own story to tell, too. We enjoy Joon because of his enthusiasm, gentle spirit, and willingness to serve. Maybe you'll discover like we have that Joon has 'A Beautiful Mind' in search of a good story.
