Support for Israel linked to church attendance

A new Gallup poll has found that regular churchgoers are more likely to support Israel than those who attend church less frequently or not at all. The findings are based on an aggregated sample of over 14,000 US adults surveyed each February from 2001 to 2014.  The poll found tha… 詳閱

買樓迷思(2) 學校…..我的主

最近兩宗港聞,看罷甚有感慨. 第一宗是會考放榜 報導仍是千篇一律 a. 多少十優狀元,他們的奮鬥成功史…. b. 多少人成績不及第,又找幾個人分享什么成績不代表一切等勸勉 今年攪攪新意思,報導學民仔黃之鋒的成績,連高官林鄭也不忘刻毒地笑住恭喜他. 每次聽放榜新聞都有些 mixed feeling. 若大學真不是最好出路,若成績真的這么冇代表性,傳媒就不會年年大肆報導(註… 詳閱

撕裂社會的民主人格

環視本港政治與社會氛圍,撕裂對立的情緒高漲,教會身處其中,如何展示我們同時有「愛心」與「真理」的信仰質素。無論是和諧教牧面對上街信徒,還是上街教牧面對簽名「反佔中」信徒,任何地方堂會必然出現不同政治取向的教牧與信徒。面對「政治化」的場景,正考驗教會內我們民主人格如何,基督徒的自律與寬容究竟有多少? 教會要堅拒任何「表態式政治」,如同… 詳閱

關注溫州教會被強拆十字架事件

據本地與海外媒體報導,2014年7月21日凌晨,約600名警察、城管等人預備動手強拆溫州平陽縣水頭鎮救恩堂。近千名信徒與群眾高呼「反對暴力」阻止強拆行動,有多人在衝突中遭打傷,事件仍在發展中。 本港教會不能對此事漠不關心,因為中央的宗教政策明確有所逆轉,我們不能天真地認為胡溫執政期間較為寬鬆的宗教自由局面依然存在。教會人士需要重新認知習近平執政… 詳閱

[青少年主日信息] 未來同盟戰(太13:1-9,18-23)

  2014年7月13日 | 循道衛理聯合教會香港堂青少年主日中堂講道 今天看太13章經典撒種比喻。內容講農夫耕田播種,種子落不同地方,落得對有好收成;落點不對就難搞,有被荊棘擋住,有飛鳥吃掉,也有泥土不深生唔到根。比喻重點正如耶穌解釋,天國道理像種子撒在不同土壤,有否成果在乎土壤本身,即人的態度。好土壤(接受道理)會開花結果,但更多情況是有問題:有… 詳閱
