保守美南浸信會牧師接納其同性戀兒子,並改變其教會

In the parking lot, he told me in a nervous voice, “Dad, I’m gay.” My heart skipped a beat and I turned towards him and we gave one another the biggest and longest hug as we cried. And all I could tell him was that I loved him so muc… 詳閱

[中國主日信息] 迦密山起義(王上18:17-24,36-40)

在教會中國主日與青少年分享沉重信息:從先知以利亞故事反省社會改變基本條件,談八九民運對港人啟蒙與後來挫折,旁及台灣本土歷史及教會見證。盼透過重溫歷史,重尋身份與信念,努力成為真正的人。當時未流行「真‧香港人」,還在談賽德克‧巴萊。 現在想來,以人民為主體做詮釋原是我基本關懷。從八九民運切入,看港人如何走到今天,講來講去都是世代責任,… 詳閱

請真正的福音派站出來!

based on the earliest vision for the movement, one does not have to be reformed to be an evangelical. One does not have to be pro-life, anti-gay marriage, or republican to be evangelical. One does not have to believe in a literal six-day creation to be an evangelical. One doe… 詳閱

從”Daddy, PaPa and Me”,再思「維護」的意義

究竟教會參與三宗聯署,又大力推動參與518的遊行,背後所表達的,是「維護家庭價值」,還是「恐同」?這實在是一個需要非常小心看清楚的動機。因為,「維護家庭價值」所代表的,是關乎一個信仰群體(或不一定是信仰群體,也可以是一個社群)的宣認,理論上是和平的,是指著自己而說的;但「恐同」(或可說是「反同」),所代表的很大可能是一個「抗爭」,可以… 詳閱

我們是否傳講一個關於缺乏的福音?

“Inadequacy stories encourage immature emotions like greed, vanity, and insecurity by telling us that we are somehow incomplete. These stories then offer to remove the discomfort of those emotions with a simple purchase or association with a brand.… 詳閱

非尼哈信徒與他們的福音聯盟

When Enns refers to Phinehas, he’s talking about an important standard-bearer for holiness in the Old Testament. Numbers 25 says that when the Israelites were partaking in idolatry because of intermingling with Moabite women, Phinehas, a priest and grandson of Aaron, the brother of Moses, saw an Israelite man tak… 詳閱

勇敢做正當的事 (寫於六四25周年)

上星期,我身在波蘭華沙,當地正準備慶祝25年前6月4日發生的一件事。波蘭總統科莫羅夫斯基在展覽板上寫: 1989年6月4日,這國家的聲音以投票決定波蘭將再次成為自由。由智慧和勇敢的人民推動了像雪崩的改變。這25年的自由,波蘭向更好的改變。 這是一次甚麼的決定?簡單來說,1988年5月至8月期間,波蘭工人舉行大型示威,導致當時共產黨政府願意承認團結工會的合法… 詳閱

美國循道衛理聯合教會有牧師要求就同性戀問題上和諧分裂

A group of United Methodist pastors and theologians is calling for an amicable split of the denomination, saying differences over homosexuality and other issues are irreconcilable. The group describes itself as traditionalist and says its ranks include more than 80 members, including pastors of some of the larger United Methodis… 詳閱

曾思瀚教授批評五一八和賴特論爭為世俗權力遊戲

 Who gives these people the right to speak?…   When voices attempt to drown out other voices, the process becomes a power struggle and church political game rather than dialogue.  As such, these voices whether debating the family value issue or NPP issue are playing a dangerous secularized power game… 詳閱

新文化、科技及經濟下的青少年事工

Let me define what I mean with these terms. By defense, I mean that parents and churches must attempt to protect children from damaging content. Adults have a responsibility to establish boundaries that guard kids from harmful material in movies and television before they are mature enough to wisely navigat… 詳閱
