崇拜稿

崇拜箴言

敝堂有個嚇死人的傳統,崇拜主席要將個崇拜流程,一字一句,好似編劇咁,用文字寫出來。即係連你大叫「哈利路亞」,幾時同埋同唱副歌,甚至最後一句唱幾多次都要寫清楚的。

有人問:咁樣寫,會唔會「消滅聖靈的感動」。我覺得唔會,原因係:我每次寫完一次,總會問自己,我呢段經文放係呢首歌如果用呢個方法彈又會點呢……同埋,睇返往往會發現,咦?原來呢段咁樣,放係呢度……幾得意喎……我「覺得」(係一個結果論)應該係有聖靈陪伴我寫稿,否則寫唔出咁樣的效果。

寫崇拜稿,好易暴露個人的靈命……(弊弊弊)

同埋,寫完往往好疲倦……同埋好夜……但係這亦是一段與主很親密的時間。如果有興趣寫,可以由祈禱會開始。慢慢你會發現,寫原來都係經歷主的好方法。寫,讓你明白主,明白自己,明白信仰更多。

隨後,Leo Kwan給了我一篇NT Wright寫,關於聖經崇拜的文章。這篇文章很有意思。

 Christian worship is, as we have seen, focused on God himself, the creator; but, from very early indeed, it is also worship of the Lamb, the Messiah, the Lord, the risen Jesus.

Christian worship and prayer are always and only a response to God’s sovereign grace and mercy; but this response is pleasing to God.

Christian worship ought to bring together the often disjointed aspects of our human life.  A further threefold division: Christian worship integrates the whole person, the whole community, and the whole creation.
