Archbishop Paul on Theological Eduation 主教看神學教育:教會篇

鄺:鄺保羅大主教/香港聖公會教省主教長
余:余鋒倫/聖職志願人

余:大主教你好,知道你向來非常重視普世聖公宗的神學教育,可否和我們分享一下箇中因由?

鄺:首先,我自己幾代都是聖公會人,自小在聖公會成長,至今亦已服務聖公會幾十年。我不但在香港,亦在普世聖公宗的層面有事奉。這些經驗讓我看到整個聖公宗的存在着實有上帝的美好的旨意。普世聖公宗是聖公宗群體聯繫的組織,是全球 40 個教省的一個契合 (communion)。這個契合的存在是上帝呼召它出來為祂工作的,所以必定有它的使命在其中。面對來自政治、經濟、宗教、氣候、生態等方面的挑戰,普世聖公宗繼續緊守它的使命。

然而有使命,就一定要有人承擔使命;因此我們需要裝備人做這些工作,這包括所有聖公會人,不論是牧師或信徒。神學教育在這方面就扮演了重要的角色。「教育」這個詞的原文意思,就是幫助人將其內在的潛質引發出來;而神學教育則是要幫助人能夠更認識上帝,並順服、聆聽上帝的吩咐以事奉祂、服務世界,承擔教會的使命。這也是我重視普世聖公宗的神學教育最主要的原因。

Nagasaki: Why Suffering Does Not Have the Last Word 長崎──沉思原爆

Dr Matthew Jones shares a reflection he wrote for Ming Hua’s recent study trip to Japan.

“We human beings are a mystery to ourselves. We are rational and irrational, civilized and savage, capable of deep friendship and murderous hostility, free and in bondage, the pinnacle of creation and its greatest danger. We are Rembrandt and Hitler, Mozart and Stalin, Antigone and Lady Macbeth, Ruth and Jezebel. “What a work of art,” says Shakespeare of humanity. “We are very dangerous,” says Arthur Miller in After the Fall; “We meet…not in some garden of wax fruit and painted leaves that lies East of Eden, but after, after the Fall, after many, many deaths.” [1]
