I Practiced the Korean


After everyone introduced themselves, Mark explained how the ceremony would work. We were to sit in silence until Good Man and I decided to say our vows. Then Sister and Johnny would read a poem. After that, guests were allowed to speak, allowing some silence between each speaker for reflection.

The silent period before we said our vows was shorter than I would've liked. But most people aren't used to the silence of Quaker meetings and seemed uncomfortable, so we started a little earlier. I had practiced my vows in Korean beforehand, but my pronunciation wasn't perfect. Oh well. I had promised to make bilingual cheat sheets beforehand but didn't. We didn't forget the vows.
