「你咁講就唔啱喇!」──論溝通裡的規範

近日香港教會和社會裡的政治爭議越趨熾熱,有些人主張要多多溝通和對話,這類聲音在教內也很流行,甚至可以說是主導,這可見於《時代論壇》的眾多文章,以及某些常被教內媒體悄悄地冠之為「教會領袖」的一群牧者、神學院教授的信徒之言論及聲明。但一些信徒(包括本人)常批評那類言論過於空洞。在本文,我會首先分析一下溝通裡的規範,然後我會把這些概念應… 詳閱

Pope Francis on Monday (Oct. 27) waded into the controversial debate over the origins of human life, saying the big bang theory did not contradict the role of a divine creator, but even required it.

[聖樂主日信息] 齊唱耶穌係邊位?(太22:34-46)

被邀為聖樂主日講道,透過經課馬太福音經文指出早期信徒崇拜經驗如何影響他們生活。主題所限略去了「基督是誰的後裔?」背後歷史耶穌問題,集中討論馬太引用詩110篇(LXX詩109篇)如何反映他們以至整個新約群體的敬拜實踐。 這裡主要參考Larry W. Hurtado在How on Earth Did Jesus Become a God? Historical Questions about Earthliest Devotion to Jesus的成果,強調第二聖殿時期猶太教一神論背景中,… 詳閱

為何福音派山頭主義戕害基督福音?

The reaction to my analysis of the God TV debacle has been interesting, to say the least. Many people were appreciative and thankful that someone articulated what they were thinking. Others were horrified at what they perceived as an attack on Christian brothers and sisters. While I expected that, what intrigue… 詳閱

教宗在家庭議會裡贏了、輸了、抑或平手?

How you view the no-consensus outcome of the just-concluded Extraordinary Synod on the Family very much depends on whether or not you are rooting for Pope Francis to change the Catholic Church.

香港“佔中”對華人教會的沖擊

“佔中”的緣起 2014年8月31日大陸全國人大常委會宣布關於香港特首普選辦法的最後決定,嚴格限定候選人的資格,以及評選程式,實質上推翻了2007年時對2017年實行普選的承諾。感到受騙的香港人,包括學生、教授和社會人士自9月22日開始發動了大規模的非暴力抗議活動。 9月28日那天,將近十萬人坐滿了香港核心政治及金融區的馬路(中環),繼而進佔商業區旺角和銅鑼灣… 詳閱

佔領運動帶來的思考(上)

「佔領運動」(或「雨傘運動」)仍在演變當中,最終達致結局如何,沒有人能充分掌握。當筆者作為同情與支援這場運動,作為「非局外人」,也不是有分於決策或組織的任何位置,嘗試就參與中的反思,拋出來與各位探討,我從所站的位置所思所言,必有主觀與偏頗程度。 定性與參與 「佔領運動」無疑是由「和平佔中」運動引發而起,九二八凌晨「佔中三子」宣布提早… 詳閱
