迎向未來

史俊才 // 管理委員會祕書

 

 

光陰似箭,歲月如梭,不經不覺我參與晨光事奉已有十年,委實感到十分榮幸。起初我對晨光事工不甚了了,只知它是個幫助華人的社區組織。及至被邀請加入行政委員會擔任秘書一職,我義不容辭,一口答應,希望自己在職場的經驗與知識有助晨光事工的發展。誠然,在這十年間,我獲益良多,並且遠超我所付出的。

首先,作為一名管理顧問,我曾經親眼目睹在商業世界中,人們承受著何其巨大的壓力。在晨光服務使我對心理健康的重要性更加敏感,並看到能積極地預防及應對因平衡家庭與工作、個人和其他日常生活所帶來的壓力的需要。

第二,在晨光服侍讓我明白如何作耶穌基督的門徒。晨光的異象是透過與華人教會合作,為社區提供輔導和教育服務,幫助有需要人士渡過困境。培養社會公義及憐憫社區(彌迦書6章),履行愛鄰舍的教訓。

第三,晨光在華人社區中扮演著特殊的角色。無論你是第一代還是第二代的移民,我們的文化背景都會塑造我們的身份認同感、價值觀和訴求。我特別讚賞晨光專業的團隊,他們孜孜不倦地在社區內提供多種語言(粵語,普通話,英語)的輔導服務和教育研討會。

展望未來,迎向日益複雜的社會,及不斷湧入的中國移民,中心的服務需求越來越大,尤以普通話群體為甚。因此,我在這裡誠意邀請你參與晨光的事工,如與我們聯繫(訂閱晨光通訊)、為我們禱告、與朋友和家人分享我們的事工、在經濟上支持我們、參加我們的研討會,或參與服事等等。

「我們曉得萬事都互相效力、叫愛神的人得益處、就是按他旨意被召的人。」(羅馬書8:28)                                       

Facing The Future          

Danny Sze (Secretary, Management Committee)

 

Reflecting on my time at First Light Care, I realise that it is such a privilege to be involved in the ministry for the past 10 years. 

Before my involvement, my understanding of First Light Care was rather limited. I had heard about the ministry from my church and I knew they did some good work in the Chinese community. When the invitation came to serve on the Management Committee 10 years ago, I jumped at the opportunity. I thought it would be a good way to leverage what I had been learning in my profession to serve the community. And while there is definitely an element of that in my role as Secretary, I realise I have gained far more from my involvement than I have ever given. In particular, three things stand out.

Firstly, being a management consultant, I have witnessed how, in the commercial world, stress can take its toll on people. Serving in FLC has led me to be more sensitive to the importance of mental health, and the need to prevent or deal with the stress inevitably coming from managing a career while balancing the needs of family, self, and other responsibilities. 

Secondly, FLC has opened my eyes to the role of being a disciple of Jesus Christ.  If we are to truly show our love to our neighbour, we need to foster social justice and show mercy to our community (Micah 6). This is in FLC's vision, and by partnering with Chinese churches in Sydney, counselling and education services are provided to those in our community who are going through tough times. 

Thirdly, FLC plays a special role in the Chinese community. Whether we are first or second generation migrants to this great country, our cultural background shapes our identity, values and needs. I especially applaud the effort of our professional team, who tirelessly provide counselling services and education seminars in various languages (Cantonese, Mandarin, English). 

Looking forward, with the increasing number of Chinese ethnics moving to and living in Australia, and the increased complexity of our modern society, I see an increasing need for this ministry, especially in the Mandarin language group. I strongly encourage you to get involved in our ministry, such as getting in touch (e.g. subscribe to our newsletter), praying for us, sharing our ministry with your friends and family, supporting us financially, participating in our seminars, and serving our community directly with us!

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” ( Romans 8:28)
