UMC's first Korean bishop resigns

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The United Methodist Church's first Korean-American bishop, Hae-Jong Kim, has resigned, following a complaint the church would not specify.
Kim, 70, formerly led the western New York and western Pennsylvania regions, then taught at New Jersey's Drew Theological Seminary till his contract ended in June.
After an unspecified January complaint, a "just resolution" was agreed to by the complainant, Kim and the church, said President Peter Weaver of the Council of Bishops.
