牧者园地



几年来,更新网站的呼声颇高,希望看到教会生活的新的内容。我也常在祷告中纪念这件事。感谢主,现在ERIC弟兄帮我们更新了网页,也教会了我一些简单的文字更新操作方法。
那么,人们要在这个网站上看到什么呢?我只能通过自己的想象和推测,将这个网站作为一个见证神恩典的窗口。你来到这里的时候,就是进入了我们的家门。
曾几何时,我们当中的绝大多数人来到这块陌生的国度,迷茫、彷徨、沮丧甚至绝望。但是,神的怜悯竟然也临到了我们这些中国大陆来的新移民,不仅让我们拥有了自己的教会,而且还被美国长老教会接纳为当中的一员。
我盼望你不仅通过这个网站在我们这个家里走一走,更盼望你也可以来到我们教会坐一坐,聊一聊。如果你是主内的弟兄姊妹,我们请你来和我们一起敬拜、服事主。如果你尚在信仰的路上奔波求索,就请你来与我们一同畅谈信仰,认识耶稣,那位我们曾听说却未深知的奇妙救主。即使你是路过,想停一停,歇一歇,我们也乐意奉上香茶或咖啡。无论如何,这里总有一席之地为你而预备。我们欢迎你,并乐意认识你。相信你在这里看见的不是“热闹”,而是神奇妙的作为以及祂赐予我们的满溢的恩典。

亲爱的弟兄姊妹,平安!
网站不是新奇的事,但新奇的是我们竟然也有了自己的网站。这样,就让我们和全世界架起了沟通的桥梁。
当你来到这里时,我希望你和我一样,有欢喜,有快乐,有感恩,有自豪,因为神的儿子耶稣基督在我们中间行了大事。
我要为我们可爱的弟兄姊妹感谢赞美我们的主。我们来自五湖四海,今天在美国这片陌生的土地上建立了自己的教会,这是神何等奇妙的作为啊。
我们今天仍然很小,很不成熟,但神的祝福却让我们的福杯满溢。我们的前面不会是通途,因为主耶稣的十字架道路本身就有很多的艰难险阻。然而,我们彼此扶持相携同行在这条道路上时,因有耶稣的怜悯慈爱保守我们,我们就欢喜快乐地与神同行。
我们深深地知道我们是何等的软弱,信心是何等的小,所以,我们天天祈求神的怜悯,帮助我们在生命上长进。我们是一群天国的新移民,本身仍带着过去世界在我们身上留下的烙印。因此,我们就学习彼此包容,彼此扶持,彼此忍耐的功课,以期让我们的教会渐渐成长为我们属灵的家园,培养生命的学校。
愿我们微小的声音,不息地唱着赞美主的歌。愿赞美的诗歌成为我们孤独时的陪伴,软弱中的力量,病痛中的安慰,失意时的盼望。
主耶稣是葡萄树,我们是枝子。我们愿意将我们的生命连接在十字架的恩典上,结出荣耀神的果实。我们的祷告是:求耶稣,赦我罪,入我心,做我主。
唯愿我们常在祷告中彼此纪念,同蒙主恩,天天长进。阿们。

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, Peace be with you all.

 Nothing is weird about websites, but what is exciting is we even have our own website, so that we are connected to the other parts of the world.

When you come to visit this website, I hope that you will feel like me to have excitement, joy, gratitude and pride when you find out that “Jesus Christ, Son of God has done great things for them.”

First of all, I praise the Lord for having brothers and sisters so lovely as you are. We are Chinese mainly from all parts of China. It is God’s wonderful work that we can establish a church of our own in this strange land of the United States of America.

Today, we are still very small and quite immature, but our cup has been overflowing with blessings from the Lord. We know for sure that our future is not an easy way at all, since God’s way itself is very challenging. However, we have been experiencing the presence of God and been full of joy when we walk together by helping with each other. 

We do know how weak we are, how little the faith we have, so everyday we pray for God’s mercy to help us grow in our faith. We are a group of new immigrants in the Kingdom of God, still carrying with us the brands stamped onto us in our old life. Therefore, we learn to be patient with each other, to support each other, and to be tolerant of each other, in order to build our church gradually to be our spiritual home as well as a school nurturing life.

May our little voice keep singing hymns to praise the Lord, and may the singing be our companion in our loneliness, the strength in our weakness, comfort in our sickness, and hope in our depression. 

The Lord Jesus Christ is the vine, and we are branches. We are to connect our lives to the grace of the Cross to bring out fruit to glorify God. Our prayer is: Dear Lord Jesus, forgive our sins, enter our lives, be our Lord.

May we pray for each other often, enjoy Lord’s grace together, and grow in faith day by day.

Amen.
