No. 12 – 落地生根?中国移民与新加坡教会

落地生根?中国移民与新加坡教会

Author: 罗翠璧

Editor: 刘淑平

Pages: 34

Publication year: 2014

ISBN 13: 978-981-09-0869-0

Description

中国移民与新加坡教会的课题,对于许多本地教会来说,可说是个“烫手的山芋”。 因为两者之间的张力、冲击与误会是必然存在的。因此许多教会的中国人事工都碰到了困难。

罗翠璧在三一神学院修读课程时,选择以中国人所创办的以马内利基督教会为研究课题。她的专文将她与以马内利创办人王祎牧师的访谈,特别针对教会的历史、身份定位与文化互动三方面做出具体的分析,并提出一个重要的问题:“不少本地教会都有华文崇拜,并有专门服事中国移民或学生的事工,为什么中国人要自己开一间教会?”两位本地牧者、三位中国移民牧者,以及一位三一神学院讲师,亦受邀撰写回应文章。希望这些对话能激发教会间自由的交流与合作,将福音广传。– 刘淑平

“本地教会若要认真开展中国人事工,本地的领袖必须思考到底他们有没有准备好接纳文化完全不同的人作为教会的核心成员、甚至进入领导体系?到底这是谁的责任?文化差异有时的确无法逾越,但文化藩蓠却能透过彼此了解和接纳而打破。在外国人学习入乡随俗的同时,本地人必须要有求同存异的胸襟,而非以高姿态的方式与外国人相处,以自己为‘主体’,硬要对方融入自己的文化,却没有明白及欣赏对方的特质。”–罗翠璧

Endorsement

Behind this collection lie probing questions about how ‘World Christianity’ may be classified. Is the term simply another way of describing Christianity today, or is the term a product of the deep binaries resulting from the decolonization model? Are the challenges of documentation merely technical or are they profoundly theological? I cannot commend this thoughtful and crucial collection too highly.  - IAIN R. TORRANCE, President,  Princeton Theological Seminary

Documentation is a practice that is crucial to any kind of research.  Conceptualizing documentation itself is a theme that underlies this book. By entering into the theological foundations of “documenting world Christianity in the 21st century,” this work offers a perspective that is positive, confident and profound, especially in regard to a subject that is pivotal to missiology and to the whole of Christian theology as well.ADAM WOLANINSJ, Full Professor, Faculty of Missiology, Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome

This book gives an excellent introduction to the challenges and prospects of documenting missionary experiences. The rich encounter between the Gospel, its heralds and hearers in different cultures and nations for the past 2,000 years can easily be lost and forgotten. This book highlights the needs and challenges of collecting missionary experiences from all over the world in the present time. - JAROSŁAW RÓŻAŃSKI, OMI, Professor and Head of Missiology, Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University, Warsaw

There is a great deal of serious and technical content in this book for historical and missiological scholars. But the specifics are connected to the depths of reflection on memory, and hence ecclesial identity. I recommend the book to a wider audience. - GEORGE SUMNER, Principal, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto

This book is a guide and an inspiration for all interested in World Christianity. Its contributors ably demonstrate the variety of documentation and methods of collection and call persuasively for a sharing of memories and interpretations across the globe.EMMA WILD-WOOD, Director, Henry Martyn Centre, Cambridge

Documentation may sound a largely technical matter, a concern principally for the librarians and archivists who service academic studies. This book shows how crucial it is, not just to scholarship, but to the life and mission of the Church throughout the world. It is stuffed full of good things. Some of them are richly suggestive theologically; some are revealing in surprising ways about Christian history, thought and life, not least in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Some are not just powerful but potentially explosive in their implications, especially if we neglect their message. It is a book not merely for specialists, but for all who care about Christian mission.ANDREW F. WALLS,  Professor, University of Edinburgh, Liverpool Hope University and Akrofi-Christaller Institute, Ghana

妇女在教会的服事

Author: 俞丽鑫

Editor: 何威达

Pages: 17

Publication year: 2012

ISBN 13: 978-981-07-2260-9

Description

『妇女在教会的服事』在新加坡基督教教会可算是一个极具争议、同时是不能 再回避的议题。在这专文、俞丽鑫牧师从“妇女在教会服事的背景”、“妇 女在教会服事的挑战”、及“我对妇女在教会服事的展望”三方面,反思她自己回应上帝呼召的历程。两位三一神学院华文部的资深讲师、以及两位来自中国新一辈的教牧,对俞牧师的专文、也撰写回应短文、丰富读者对这课题的思考与讨论。妇女全职事奉的问题,绝非单纯属于姐妹们自己的问题,而是弟兄和姐妹、以及教会整体、需要共同回应的问题。
“如果姐妹在服事上不被肯定,或者不能被按立,我们怎么办呢?只要记得,我们是被呼召来服事是上帝的国度,而不是来争取我们的权利。上帝有他的时间,上帝会为我们开路。我们要做的,就是心平气和地分享上帝在我们身上的恩典,以及我们如何回应上帝的呼召,并忠于上帝的教导,以仆人的生命去服事。在我服事的旅途中,我从来不以性别来定义自己的服事,我要求自己坦诚、努力,分享上帝在我心中的感动,承担主分配给我的工作。接下来就由我所属于的信仰群体进行辨别,去印证上帝的呼召,他们看到了上帝在我身上的作为,于是鼓励我献身。” — 俞丽鑫
