【溫哥華短宣中心短宣路】2020 年 9 月

 

爾國臨格・爾旨得成 
Pastor Carol 溫哥華短宣中心副總幹事

快將離開服侍了三年多的溫哥華短宣中心,心裡難捨: 是一群同心同行的戰友—包括董事、同工、短宣學員與眾教會;是一份份真摯的情誼,彼此鼓勵關心互勉禱告;是一個個看到神臨格同在的場景、時刻,縱有千言萬語也不能表達一切。

猶記起神帶領我到短宣中心時,祈禱感動是要向信徒、教會分享神的心意,更多的將信仰落實在生活中,如何活出聖經的教導,活出主禱文中所祈求的—願神的國降臨,神的旨意成就在地上,如同在天上,活出聖經所說的平安,城市轉化成為可喜可樂之城。這幾年,我看見:

1. 人靈魂得拯救

這些年教導個人佈道訓練,為的是履行大使命,讓人可聽聞救恩。最喜歡教的科目是「主題式見證」,從中可以聽到學員因著耶穌而生命改變的故事,見證神的大能、恩典與同在。與學員出隊時,重拾少年時到公共屋邨逐家逐戶拍門傳福音的情懷,又看到學員從最起初害怕退縮,到結業時的奮勇自信; 每次聽到他們報告,聖靈如何奇妙地帶人到他們面前、神如何教他們說合宜的說話、 他們都驚訝對方的單純信靠⋯⋯感恩不盡!

在眾多的場景接觸中,其中一次深刻的出隊 -- 我與學員到一個家庭,夫妻經常吵架,鬧著要離婚。同學帶著水果拜訪,自動地分成幾個小隊,有的關心太太、有的與兩位小女孩講故事、有的向外婆分享救恩,一幅很美的圖畫,最後她們都是信了主,上教會去,丈夫卻多次借故藉詞離開。有一天,丈夫願意坐下來與我們聊聊天,當天聖靈大大工作,他竟把所有拜了十多年的偶像、摩門經都拿出來,並自己親自打碎。他們夫妻最後也是離了婚,同學們繼繼跟進,三年後,丈夫高興地告訴我們,他受洗了。感謝天父愛他們一家,也謝謝同學的鍥而不捨。

聯市舉辦的 We are One Family 嘉年華

 

2. 教會合一見證

短宣中心推動的 Rise and Shine Movement 口號是「興起發光,全民皆兵,凝聚教會,轉化城市」,教會合一是神的心意。2019 年 6 月在三聯市舉辦的 We are One Family 嘉年華,不單讓鄰舍認識教會,更讓跨宗派、語言 (粵、國、英、韓及阿拉伯)的 500 多位弟兄姊妹一同服侍,當中只見穿著大會 T-shirt 的人在 Lafarge Lake 穿梭服侍,無分彼此。兩千多名遊人(市長也到場)除歡愉地玩攤位、觀賞精彩表演外,均見證著神掌權天氣,以及信徒的愛心。

列治文夜市舉辦「心靈加油站」攤位

 

另外,短宣中心與眾教會在列治文夜市舉辦「心靈加油站」攤位,每晚約有兩百多人,不分國籍、年齡的遊人都爭相入內,欲知心理測驗結果,從人對自身的好奇,引發他們對造物主產生興趣,指向只有神方能解決人生問題。十三晚的攤位由不同教會輪流當值負責,而參與的弟兄姊妹又自不同的年齡、語言組別,記得有一位牧者說過:「參與這次服侍,是教會先被祝福,教會內先合一」。還有於國慶日,五十名來自不同教會的弟兄姊妹,浩浩蕩蕩,志氣高昂地高舉和高喊 God keep our Land。

陪讀媽媽

 

3. 信徒回應呼召

短宣中心透過舉辦外展課程,例如:陪讀媽媽、長者、無家者、特殊需要兒童、留學生等等,讓信徒可透過裝備,更明白不同群體的需要、特質,以便提供更適切的佈道方式及全人關懷,並且回應神安放在信徒心裡的呼召。感恩的是受訓關懷無家者的信徒,成立了外展隊,每兩星期到市中心探望,已一年多時間。另外,今年因著新冠肺炎,網上課程成為授課的新常態,也因此打破地域的界限,「陪長者多行一里路—深化長者關懷事工」於溫哥華、三藩市、西雅圖、紐約和波士頓等地舉辦,期盼華人在長者靈性關顧和臨終關懷方面可有進一步認識。其中一位參加者的回饋「我想代表老人家多謝 Pastor Carol,妳講出很多老人家的心底需要,讓有老人家的知道。」

關懷無家者

 

感謝神讓小僕可以在溫宣服侍,見證祂的奇妙與榮美!我將要回香港到基督教關懷無家者協會事奉,香港是我出生成長的地方,這些年,發生了巨變,人的心失去盼望,人的關係變得脆弱多疑,很需要耶穌做修補復和的工作,神裝備我讀輔導、院牧輔導、神學,我心感在這時代,我是責無旁貸。隨著天災瘟疫,經濟衰退,在香港、中國、亞洲的貧窮人、無家者的數目只會增多,而自小神安放在我心中,要服侍貧窮人的呼召不斷在呼喚。未來的日子,是充滿未知,要憑信心仰賴神供應薪酬,但我只知一件事: 「爾國臨格,爾旨得成」是我一生追求的。

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6,7

因此, 你們是大有喜樂, 但如今, 在百般的試煉中暫時憂愁。彼得前書 1:6
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 1 Peter 1:6
