27 Jan York

Now, Lord, you let your servant go in peace: your word has been fulfilled.My own eyes have seen the salvation which you have prepared in the sight of every people;A light to reveal you to the nations and the glory of your people Israel.Luke 2.29-32 

   
   
 
幸好昨天上午沒去觀禮,原來要祝聖church of England第一個女主教。當年宗教改革而引發的教會分裂後,新教團體都高舉「唯獨聖經」,但是聖經上有「若有無可指責的人,只作一個婦人的丈夫,兒女也是信主的,沒有人告他們是放蕩不服約束的, 就可以設立 。 (‭提多書‬ ‭1‬:‭6‬)」。這個怎麼說呢?太複雜,太糾結。York大主教是個黑人,我認同,因為教會要努力踐行大公性;雖然Yorkshire幾乎沒有幾個黑人。但是女主教實在是…教會歷史上很多偉大的聖人只是個修士修女,甚至平信徒。幹嘛一定要趕這個時髦?肢體們怎麼看? 

 

10 Jan 聖統聖秩

把髒水都潑給羅馬,新教團體找到立腳;新興教派又潑髒水給後者,摩門JW出來了。是時候跪下懺悔,回歸磐石了。先有教會,後有聖經;聖統聖序,教會聖傳。  
前年,在呂老師的浙江人文之旅活動上第一次欣賞女皇jubilee音樂會,其中的行星組曲和I owe to thee等幾首曲子特別感動。一晃在UK都快一年了,受台灣室友影響,淘了不少黑膠。從最初的教會音樂擴展出來,這幾天竟然蒐到這兩組,繼往開來,真是幸事。 

    
    
    
    
 
去St.Marry望完六點的彌撒,回來做scallop&chorizo拌面吃。嘖嘖[色] 

   
37/40-“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭55‬:‭6-7‬ ESV) 趁上主可找到的时候,你们应寻找他;趁他在近处的时候,你们应呼求他。罪人应离开自己的行径,恶人该抛弃自己的思念,来归附上主,好让上主怜悯他;来归附我们的天主,因为他是富于仁慈的。//這段給和合本翻譯點讚:當趁耶和華可尋找的時候尋找他, 相近的時候求告他。 惡人當離棄自己的道路; 不義的人當除掉自己的意念。 歸向耶和華,耶和華就必憐恤他; 當歸向我們的上帝,因為上帝必廣行赦免。

34/40-“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. (‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭14‬ ESV)   
    
    
 
35/40-In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭16‬ ESV) 照样,你们的光也当在人前照耀,好使他们看见你们的善行,光荣你们在天之父。」  

 
36/40-When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. (‭Matthew‬ ‭2‬:‭10-11‬ ESV) 他们一见到那星,极其高兴欢喜。他们走进屋内,看见婴儿和他的母亲玛利亚,遂俯伏朝拜了他,打开自己的宝匣,给他奉献了礼物,即黄金、乳香和没药。//這週二是Epiphany主顯節,紀念三博士[kings]朝拜耶穌的日子。🙏 not only worship Him,but also live in Him. 

  

4 Jan 主顯節

【晚祷】(主显节望夜)天主,祢今日藉异星的引导,使祢的唯一圣子显示给天下万民;我们现在因信德的光照认识了祢,求祢也不断地指引我们,将来能到达天乡,瞻仰祢的圣容。以上所求是靠祢的子,我们的主天主耶稣基督,祂和祢及圣神永生永王。阿们。  
30/40-And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ (‭Matthew‬ ‭25‬:‭40‬ ESV) 王要回答說:『我實在告訴你們,這些事你們既做在我這弟兄中一個最小的身上,就是做在我身上了。』// 晚上教堂餐會被震撼到了,平時不下廚房的小朋友們原來個個深藏不露。詩歌遊戲環節也好喜樂,第一次聽中英文雙語齊唱恩友歌,Joe老奶奶還耍了下花腔。得贈弟兄的沒藥乳香小玫瑰十架,大愛。🙏 

    
    

   
31/40-Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭11‬:‭28-30‬ ESV) 凡勞苦擔重擔的人可以到我這裏來,我就使你們得安息。 我心裏柔和謙卑,你們當負我的軛,學我的樣式;這樣,你們心裏就必得享安息。 因為我的軛是容易的,我的擔子是輕省的。」 

    
   

22 Dec

17/40-While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. (‭Luke‬ ‭2‬:‭6-7‬ NIV) / 聖誕前最後一個主日,早上禮拜中午聚餐下午聚談晚上聖誕讚美頌歌會Carol,最後又宵夜。送走小朋友洗洗刷刷才有時間安靜下來祈禱。願點亮聖誕蠟燭的光,也點亮我們的心,幫助我們看見別人生命中上帝的恩典。Carol後幫人留影,自己也沒忍住,留下美好的記憶。🙏   
    
   
18/40-But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. (‭Jude‬ ‭1‬:‭20-21‬ ESV) / Dec22靜默思想,受享光榮與權柄的上主,將以纖弱之身降臨馬槽。在這個驕暴的世界中,祂不以征伐卻以溫柔謙卑之愛,悄悄來到我們中間。如此微小,卻使一切的強奪在祂面前俯伏。🙏
