仍是愛麗斯(Still Alice)

人常在變,小至生活習慣,大至人生信念等,都可以變,今日的我打倒昨日的我也非政客的專利。那麼,昨日的我是否已死?我又是誰?這些似是庸人自擾的問題,在電影《永遠的愛麗斯》(Still Alice)中顯得很具體及真實,挑戰我們思考如何看自己及身邊的人。 電影故事講述主角愛麗斯在50歲時患上腦退化症(Alzheimer’s Disease),她由一名出色的語言學教授,變為詞不達意及思… 詳閱

美國酒吧裡的教會

LUCKY SEVERSON, correspondent: If it’s 5:00 pm on Sunday, and it’s the Zia Carlo Brew Pub in Texas, it must be time for church. In no way is this meant to make light of worshipping. It’s just another way. Pastor Phillip Heinze is a senior pastor at the Calvary Luthera… 詳閱

2015年的聖灰星期三

Ash Wednesday marks the first day of the 40-day Lenten fast for Western Christians. The Christian holy day, this year falling on Feb. 18, is observed by prayer, repentance and fasting ahead of Easter. The day follows Fat Tuesday, also known as Mardi Gras, where revelers partake in their las… 詳閱

新加爾文派教會植堂運動對年青人的誘惑

The clean, slim, beautiful, fertile, straight, economically comfortable and white population love the idea of total depravity because the relative ease of their lives can only mean one thing: they are God’s favorites. However, if anything “bad” happens, they can rest assured that the totally sovereign God knew about thi… 詳閱

雜談基督教文字工作

這十數年來我觀察到香港基督教文字工作裡有一些現象,想談一談。 一,基督教文字工作的理念 基督教高舉聖經,強調傳教,文字成為其中一主要個渠道讓人認識信仰。而人們加入教會後,也需要花一段時間學習自己信仰裡的義理,在那過程裡文字自然也是一個重要渠道。如此看來,文字工作應該是基督教會基本使命裡無可或缺的一部份。沿著這進路想,既然福音是免費傳… 詳閱

知識的傷痕:基督教靈性偉人的時代掙扎

人該如何認識上帝? 常常有人說,當代社會是一個「靈性飢渴」的時代,人們企圖用各種方式找到靈性的安歇之地,希望可以為自己的生活找到價值、休息並重新得力,或許透過極端的享 樂(性愛、消費等),也或許是參加新的宗教運動。比如說在教會外,有的人參加禪修打坐,向內尋求靈性的平靜;有的人把練瑜珈作為一種修行,期待在運動中找 到身體和心靈的平衡;也… 詳閱

美國 NBC 主播 Williams 為甚麼要撒謊?

In the New York Times, a teaser for columnist Maureen Dowd’s take on the subject mused that Williams fancies himself a scholar-adventurer in the mold of Indiana Jones. At NPR, Berkeley philosopher Alva Noë wondered if the issue here might simply be that “Brian Williams is a storyteller and storyteller… 詳閱

身體神學與Fifty Shades of Grey

As ubiquitous as Fifty Shades of Grey is these days, I cannot help but think of the vast spiritual, moral, mental and emotional strides women could make, not only for themselves, but also for our culture as a whole, if they took a leap of faith and read Saint Joh… 詳閱

自我感覺良好的基督教寫作?

Fifty Shades of Gray的臉書討論潮開展了。今早起來,一打開臉書便看到有基督徒朋友張貼文章連結,文章主旨是不要看即將上畫的電影 Fifty Shades of Gray 。不出所料,文章批評那電影牽涉太多性虐和物化女性,因此基督徒不應鼓勵,甚至要反對。對這些想法我沒有甚麼意見,因為我沒有看,也不打算看,而如果真的充滿性虐,基督徒不認同是很正常的(本文並不是談那電影及相關… 詳閱

葛福臨支持暴力的一面

But if you think Franklin Graham is an advocate of nonviolence who opposes Christians engaging in violence and deadly conflict you would be mistaken. When Jerry Falwell, the founder of the old Moral Majority and Liberty University, boldly proclaimed, “God is pro-war,” Franklin Graham didn’t object. To the contrary, a… 詳閱
