盼望之根与友爱之果

( 圣经与我 – 第四集 )




March 15 - Friday Discussion

Hope From One and Friend To All


( BIBLE AND I – Episode IV )

有人說: “追求真我的人做他想做的事,而非他不得不做的事。” (《权力的游戏》) 现实生活恰恰相反,哪怕有物质鼓励,我们是否常常无法做到心中想做的事。比方说,我们心里明知该停了,但嘴上依然吃得停不下来。 我们是否常把心里想做的事一拖再拖? 到底怎么了? 是不是所有人都有这个同样的特点就证明这是理所当然的?


上周我们讨论了如何辨别隐藏在情感背后的错综复杂的动机。这周五英文组一起从圣经的角度讨论(1)我们心中看似矛盾的动机(2)出路的盼望在哪里(3)“蜕变转型"的根源和结果。


In Game of Thrones one was quoted saying, “A true man does what he will, not what he must.” In contrast, are we often not able to do what we will to do even when there is incentive? For example, do we sometimes could not stop eating when we know we should stop? Or do we delay what needs to be done again and again? What is going on? Does the fact that everyone else feels the same make it normal?


Last week, we shared how to identify the ever-changing motives behind our emotions. This Friday in the English Group, we will discuss (1) the seemingly contradicting motives in our hearts, (2) the hope of the reconciliation, (3) the source and outcome of the transformations through the lens of Bible.

"圣经与我" 系列座谈

"Bible and I" series
Friday Discussions

指环王创作者 J·R·R·托尔金 (J.R.R. Tolkien), 曾经写到, “我们都渴慕伊甸园的美好,我们也时常能捕捉到一闪即逝的 “伊甸园” 瞬间。我们整个的性情,哪怕是在最优美和最远离朽坏的时刻, 哪怕是在最善良和最人性的片段, 都仍然浸透着被放逐的惆怅。” 他的话告訴我們在人生的旅途中对人性的了解至关重要。

接下来我们将进入一个为期6-9周的新系列 “圣经与我”,分享我们各自关于人性的纯全与个性的弱点的认识。特别是在智慧的漏洞,行为的缺口, 情感的误区方面 , 增加对共性和個性的阅历 。

J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of The Rings, once wrote, “We all long for Eden, and we are constantly glimpsing it: our whole nature at its best and least corrupted, its gentlest and most human, is still soaked with the sense of exile.” In the next 6 to 9 weeks our new series – “Bible and I” – gives us a platform to share our views on the beauty and flaws of human souls. The episodes in the series include wisdom blind spots, behavior brokenness, and emotional traps among other things.
