“From Serbia to Bolivia to the American South – The Journey of a Skeptical Christian: What Does Micah 6:8 Mean to Me?”
Wednesday, March 17, 7:00pm
“Do justice. Love kindness. Walk humbly.” These words have become Westminster’s vision for a full and demanding life of discipleship. But do we risk letting them deteriorate into a mere tag line with little significance? Known to his Sojourners classmates and friends as Chi, Dr. Chi-Cheng Huang has spent his life trying to live out this calling in all aspects of his life. Three years ago, when he and his family moved to the area, these very words drew him to become involved in Westminster, but it was a long and circuitous route to get here. Join our next Aperture to hear Chi’s fascinating story that took him to Serbia-Croatia, to the streets of Bolivia to help abandoned street children (see his book When Invisible Children Sing), to leave the church, and to return as a practicing Christian. Chi will share about his life journey, including the challenges of racism he has experienced here in our own community.
Dr. Chi Huang has spent the last two decades as a practicing physician, health care leader, and social entrepreneur. Civically, from 1997-2015, he founded and ran the Bolivian Street Children Project/Kaya Children International, which addressed the needs of thousands of street children and child prostitutes. Dr. Huang has received numerous awards for his community service, teaching, and leadership such as the Harvard Medical School Golden Stethoscope Award, Boston University School of Medicine AAMC Humanism Award, and ACP Top Ten Hospitalist Award in 2018. Dr. Huang is currently an associate professor in internal medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine, executive medical director of general medicine and hospital medicine shared services, and section chief of hospital medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Health System. He and his wife, Dr. Kristin Huang, have three daughters, two grandchildren, and two wonderful Australian Shepherd dogs.
