‘Hope for a change’

Jackie Macadam hears from a scientist with a strong interest in the church in Asia.

“THE Korean War ended on July 27, 1953 without a peace treaty being signed; an armistice was signed, and a de-militarised zone established between North and South Korea, but technically North and South Korea are still at war.”

Dr David Frame, World Mission Council member and Convenor of the Asia Committee is talking about his work for the church in the precariously balanced part of the world. “Like many of my generation, I looked in horror at wars like the Korean War and the Vietnam War, and in disbelief that the world has not learned any of the lessons of the past. The situation in Korea in particular has long interested me.

“Sanctions have been imposed on North Korea because of its nuclear and missile tests, but the people to have sufered are the ordinary people.”

David has more than a passing interest in the scientiic aspects of the demilitarised Korean peninsula. He has a degree in mathematics and natural philosophy from Glasgow University and completed a PhD in high energy physics – though he usually just calls himself a nuclear physicist!

“It’s easier,” he laughs.

David comes from Barrhead originally, but his professional life has taken him all round the world – including to the world famous CERN project under the mountains of Switzerland and France.

“I have been interested in science as long as I can remember, mainly in the physical sciences, even doing a short research project as a summer student one year comparing the abrasive efects of diferent toothpastes. But I am particularly interested in fundamental particle physics and astrophysics, in summary what the universe is made up of.
