If Kermit the Frog were Methodist, he’d have a friend in La Cañada United Methodist Church Pastor Sunny Pak. When Pak was 6, she became severely ill and was hospitalized for two years. She was so ill, she prepared herself to die, noting that the medical system in Korea was not good enough to diagnose her sickness. It was then that her mother took her to a prayer mountain, known in the Western world as a retreat. On the mountain, little Sunny could hear the sound of frogs croaking as they sat in their ponds all around her. Sunny recovered, and came to adopt the frog as her symbol — her mascot, as Pak puts it — for relying on God, which she believes allowed her to be cured.
