Member in Discernment – Wei Jen Charing Chen
Wei-Jen Charing Chen is a member in discernment who wants to be a member here at United Church of Hyde Park. A member in discernment in the UCC is someone who is pursuing Ordination. Charing Chen is a fourth-year doctoral student at Chicago Theological Seminary, from Formosa, Taiwan. His researches focus on Sacred Text Hermeneutical Strategies and LGBTQ studies. Charing’s interests are queering cross-textual readings, postcolonial imaginations, and Star Trek studies. For fun he likes to bike and walk with his Chihuahua along the lake. He is a newlywed who just got married in April 2019 to partner, Adam. Among things in his future to look forward to, preparing to get his driver’s license is at the top of his list.
