在教堂舉行婚禮的意義

The couple didn’t object to getting married in her family’s old church; in fact, they found the idea a little romantic. But they weren’t particularly interested in a church wedding as Matthew described it. He told them that he would marry them, but only after more extensive conversations about Christia… 詳閱

一個基督教家庭應該是怎樣的呢?

In fact, if it were not some sort of “heresy” to say so, it sounds like the earliest communities of Christians were a lot more concerned with how they used their resources for others than how they stored up treasures for themselves after a series of capitalistic successes in orde… 詳閱

最高工時與安息-回應「愛爸媽. 愛我家」運動

有一日打開電視,見到有個幾分鐘講最低工資的短劇,以為是公營電台的製作。再看清楚,原來這議題就是連TBB也注意,特別為此製作特輯。 不過現在教內,最大力推動的,是「愛爸媽. 愛我家」運動。我想,訂立最高工時,也能維護家庭。在5.18『「愛爸媽. 愛我家」運動 ~ 啟動禮』的網站內,找到運動的三個願景希望,其中兩個條為: 所有孩子可以在父母的悉心照料下… 詳閱

a look at FB PAC’s 2012 campaign contributions show that the group has donated thousands of dollars to House Speaker John Boehner, who has repeatedly made clear his opposition to gay marriage… 詳閱

“Zero tolerance” for homophobic bullying says ABC

The importance of these issues is borne out in the statistics. A recent survey of LGBT individuals aged between 16 and 25 found that 49 per cent said that their time in school had been characterised either by actual or threat of discrimination… 詳閱

基督徒可以在政治上有分歧,但必須齊心反同?--回應〈香港宣道會對同性戀平權運動〉

我認為〈香港宣道會對同性戀平權運動〉一文前半部份寫得不錯,一至三節雖不是沒有可爭議之處(參考),但總算比較持平,認真地交代理由。或許是他們知道自己通常被批評的地方,所以現在寫文章時都學懂要避免最容易令人詬病之處。但到了第四、五、六節,始終還是很牽強,畢竟那已不是宗教或神學的問題,而是邏輯、理性、當代多元社會裡的政治理念等問題,他們… 詳閱

孩子離開教會的十個意想不到的原因

We’ve traded a historic, objective, faithful gospel based on God’s graciousness toward us for a modern, subjective, pragmatic gospel based upon achieving our goal by following life strategies. Rather than being faithful to the foolish simplicity of the gospel of the cross, we’ve set our goal on being “successful” i… 詳閱

英國福音派學生抗拒批評

… at my institution, the fee-paying culture has given rise to a predominantly white, economically-privileged, middle class student body, in which any diversity of religious or non-religious students has been overpowered by a particularly influential form of evangelical Christianity. It is a belief system that is uncomfortable with the academi… 詳閱

「溫和」與「激進」之間

教會內外討論一些社會課題時,常簡化地以「溫和」與「激進」語言來描述不同的立場與取向。筆者承認這些標籤有時有助外人能易明與掌握,然而有時過度簡化的語境會帶來思考的偏差。 就以5月6日的「商討日」(三) 而選出三個含有「公民提名」方案,坊間言論紛紛以「激進」民主派騎劫佔中運動來作論述,筆者理解不少評論是與事實不符。筆者參與新界西一場商討日,就… 詳閱
