A report today on AsiaNews.it, a Catholic evangelical news service, provides new information about Ban Ki-Moon's religious affiliation. Trouble is, I'm not a lot the wiser.
Ban Ki-moon was born in 1944 to a rural family in South Korea. He is married with three children. A Christian, he is member of a "group without Church", a serious organisation that emerged in Japan at the beginning of last century. Its members, mostly intellectuals, make the Gospel a source of inspiration for their private and public life. [AsiaNews.it]
A "group without Church" is probably a translation of 'non-denominational sect'. As for the rest, I don't know what to make of it. Despite the quite specific description of its origins, I haven't been able to identify it. What does it mean, a 'serious' organization, and why is its membership 'intellectual'?
