COP_Page_003_Image_0001이 아름다운 계절에 음악을 통하여 여러분들과 함께 교제할 기회가 생겨 기쁘게 생각합니다.

예수께서는“우리가 너희에게 피리를 불어도 너희는 춤을 추지 않았고, 우리가 곡을 해도, 너희는 울지 않았다”(마태 11: 17)라고 말씀하신 적이 있습니다. 계절의 아름다움이 사치처럼 느껴질 정도로 우리는 어려운 시대를 살고 있습니다. 경제위기 속에, 자연 재해 속에, 고국의 여러 아픈 현실 속에 문득 이웃의 기쁨과 슬픔에 함께 하지 못하는 우리들의 모습에 놀라곤 합니다.

오늘 “평화의 울림”이 여러분들에게 기쁨과 나눔이 되기를 바랍니다. 아름다운 선율이 우리들 속에 잠시 묻어 두었던 나눔의 마음들을 다시 되살아나게 만든다면 더 바랄 나위가 없겠습니다.

홍수가 덮쳐 온 세상에 물이 가득할 때 정작 마실 물은 없는 것처럼 곳곳에 값싼 은혜가 넘쳐나는 현실이지만 평화의 교회는 세상의 맑은 물이 되겠습니다. 물처럼 맑은 마음들이 준비한 이 음악회가 다시 한번 여러분들에게 기쁨과 소망이 되기를 기원합니다.

평화의 울림을 준비하면서

Youngkyun Shin, Elder at Church of Peace

COP_Page_004_Image_0001저에게는 그동안 크고 작은 음악회를 비롯하여 여러 행사를 준비했던 경험이 제법 있었습니다. 분명한 것은 그 때마다 항상 넘치는 의욕과 열정도 함께 있었다고 기억하며 결과도 대부분 큰 문제없이 잘 마무리 되었던 것으로 기억합니다.

그런데 이번에 이 “평화의 울림”은 처음부터 무척 큰 두려움으로 준비를 시작하였습니다. 오랜 불경기로 우리들의 생활은 물론 감정마저 건조해져서도 아니고 또 세월 따라 들어가는 나이 탓도 아닌 것 같았습니다. 교회가 작고 가난해서는 더 더욱 아니었습니다.

실력이 넘치는 음악인들! 그럼에도 교만하지 않고 자랑하지 않는 그 분들에게 이런 행사가 오히려 사치스럽게 비춰지는 것은 아닐는지, 또 36년의 연륜 속에서도 겸손하게 자기 자리를 굳게 지켜온 이 의식 있는 교회가 저의 마음을 쉽게 열지 못하게 하였기 때문이었습니다.

그러나 그것은 저 혼자만의 기우였습니다. 출연을 부탁 받은 그분들의 응답은 정말 맑은 아름다움으로 돌아 왔고, 행사에 보태라고 쌈지 돈을 쥐어주시는 연로하신 장로님들과 교우들의 손길은 이 울림을 넓게 퍼트려야 한다는 사명감으로 나를 강하게 밀고 있었습니다. 그리고 그 중심에 목사님과 모든 교우들이 있었지요. 부족한 힘이지만 열심을 보태기로 했지만 결과는 생각하지 않기로 하였습니다. 마음을 텅 비우고 있으면 거기 틀림없이 울림이 있을 것이라 믿기 때문입니다.

누구나 부담 없이 들을 수 있는 “평화의 울림”이 하나님을 기쁘게 해 드리고, 이웃들과 더불어 마음에 평안과 삶의 지혜를 나누는 귀한 자리가 되기를 바랄 뿐입니다.

Simcheong-ga

Simcheong-ga is one of the five surviving stories of the Korean pansori storytelling tradition. It is a story about a girl, Sim Cheong, and her father, Sim Hak-Gyu, who is called Sim-Bongsa(a blind person) by everyone. Sim-Bongsa is blind and to be cared for totally by his daughter Sim, Cheong. The story is filled with sadness, though humor enters occasionally to give balance:

Cheong’s mother dies at childbirth and her blind father is left with his daughter, who cares for him with the utmost sincerity and devotion. One day, Sim-Bongsa falls into a ditch but is rescued by a Buddhist monk who tells him that Buddha would restore his sight if he donated three hundred bags of rice to the temple. When Cheong learns that some sailors were offering any price for a virgin sacrifice, she offers herself for three hundred bags of rice. The sailors wanted to sacrifice a virgin to the Yongwang (the Dragon King of the Sea) in order to placate him to guarantee the safety of their merchant ships wherever they sailed.

After being tossed into the sea, she finds herself in the palace of the Dragon King of the Sea who, deeply moved by her filial piety, sends her back to earth wrapped in a lotus flower, which is carried to an emperor’s palace. The emperor falls in love with Cheong and makes her his empress. The empress later holds a great banquet for all the blind men of the kingdom with the hope that she would be able to find her father again. When Sim-Bongsa finally appears at the banquet, he is so shocked upon hearing his daughter’s voice again that his sight is suddenly regained.

(From the National Changguk Company of Korea)

Jut-dong-nyang

The song within the story being performed tonight is Jut-dong-nyang, (literally, “begging for breast milk”) where early in the story, Sim-Bongsa roams town streets begging women for breast milk to feed baby Sim Cheon.

During the first stanza, sang to the rhythm of joong-muh-ri, Sim-Bongsa returns home after the funeral of Sim Cheong’s mother. Desperate at the situation, he stays up the entire night, swinging violently between losing temper blaming the mother’s death trying to Sim-Cheon, and trying console Sim-Cheong, promising her that he will seek breast milk at daybreak.

During the second stanza, sang to the rhythm of joong- joong-muh-ri, Sim-Bongsa holds Sim-Cheon on one hand, and goes to the town wells, riverbank cloth washing spots and sowing houses, to find town women and to ask them to provide breast milk for Sim-Cheong. The women come to his aid, and with a big smile, Sim-Bongsa thanks them and returns home after a day of walking around town.
