會長報告2018-2019
余大峰博士

感恩

感謝父神回應我們的禱告,在祂的時間,帶領陳謝麗婷博士以及廖郭冠姿女士加入我們的輔導團隊。另外,祂也帶領高嘉華聖保羅華人聖公會堂翁沛偉牧師和基督教百思道華人公理會姚正魁牧師,兩位非常有經驗的牧者,加入晨光的顧問委員會。

我們亦感謝顧問委員會、管理委員會、同工,義務同工,以及所有在過去一年為我們代禱、奉獻支持及義務參與的朋友。我們更要感謝中央浸信會多年來容許我們使用他們教會的物業,作為市中心的輔導室。

事工動向

在4月份,我們幾位同工有機會出席今屆在南澳亞德雷德市舉行的澳洲新西蘭華福會議,與來自澳紐、香港、台灣、馬來西亞等地區的代表同見證上帝的工作,亦藉此機會向來自澳洲其他地區的教牧領袖介紹晨光的事工,特別是我們在2014年開始的教牧更新事工,很多與會者都認同這個事工的重要性。

今年進入第五個年頭的教牧更新事工所服事的教牧同工、宣教士、神學生(包括他們的配偶),共達75人,比去年有明顯的增長;這可能因為事工開始被人認識,也可能反映需求增加。

我們繼續與澳洲華人教牧神學院合作,為神學生提供事奉人員性格評估分析,學員可自由參與,分析結果不單絕對保密,學員更可選擇安排與我們的專業輔導員就結果有進深的討論,希望他們在未進入事奉工場前,對自己的恩賜和限制有更準確的認識,更能預備面對將來各樣的挑戰,減低墮入試探的機會。

另外,為更有效服侍各區華人教會不同的需要,今年度我們安排了與牧者的茶敘,盼望這些小組討論能定期進行,使晨光無論在輔導和心理教育兩方面都與眾教會能夠有更緊密的聯繫和合作。

分享

「可見栽種的算不得甚麼,澆灌的也算不得甚麼,只在那叫他生長的神。栽種的和澆灌的,都是一樣。但將來各人要照自己的工夫得自己的賞賜。因為我們是與神同工的,你們是神所耕種的田地,所建造的房屋。」林前3:7-9

感謝父神,讓我有機會在教會牧養上、在神學院教導上、在機構事奉上有份參與,見證上帝在不同工場上的作為,也見證到在不同事工上的弟兄姊妹,互相配合,彼此守望互勉,實是美事,也是上帝所喜悅的。我們所做的算不得什麼,但當我們能與神同工,看見上帝如何叫屬祂的人生命成長,那實在是最好不過。願一切榮耀頌讚歸給我們在天上、那位以恩慈憐憫對待我們的父神。

請為我們祈禱

求恩主賜我們:

  1. 對華人社區的輔導和心理教育的需要有更敏銳的觸覺;
  2. 與各華人教會的教牧領袖有更緊密的聯繫,更有效成為教會的幫助;
  3. 能更廣泛在屬靈領袖中推廣「事奉人員性格評估分析」;
  4. 有更多有使命和有輔導恩賜的退休教牧願意參與教牧更新事工;
  5. 營運開支、義務團隊、祈禱勇士的需要。

 

President’s Report 2018-2019
Dr Devin Yu

Thanksgiving

I thank my heavenly father for answering our prayers. In His time, He called Dr Winnie Chan and Mrs Cherrie Liu to join our counselling team, as well as two very experienced pastors, Rev. David Yung of St. Paul’s Anglican Church Kogarah and Rev. John Yao of Padstow Chinese Congregational Church to join our Advisory Committee.  

I also thank the Advisory Committee, the Management Committee, staff, volunteers, and everyone who has been supporting FLC ministry in the past year through prayers, donations or voluntary work. Special thanks also go to the Chinese Baptist Church for allowing us to use their church premises for so many years as our city-based counselling centre.

Ministry Update

In April, a few of us attended the Australia & New Zealand Chinese Coordination Centre of World Evangelism (CCCOWE) conference in Adelaide. We shared our ministry with delegates who came from all over Australia, New Zealand and even from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, and many of whom were particularly supportive of the Pastoral Renewal Ministry (PRM) which we started in 2014. This year, PRM has served a total of 75 pastors, missionaries, theological students, and their spouses. The number is significantly more than last year’s. This might be due to more widespread recognition of our ministry, or it may actually reflect increased needs. 

We continued to partner with the Chinese Theological College Australia by providing personality tests to interested students. The results are strictly kept confidential and follow-up counselling sessions may also be arranged. We hope that this may help them better know and prepare themselves and prepare for the many challenges in ministry, and reduce the chances of falling into temptation.

We also organised a Pastoral Tea Gathering in June which around 10 pastors attended. These meetings aim to forge closer ties and to increase cooperation with churches in terms of our counselling services and psychological educational initiatives. We hope that these gatherings can be held regularly in the future.

 Sharing

“So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labour. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.” (1 Cor. 3:7-9)

I thank my heavenly father for the opportunities to serve pastorally, to contribute in theological education and to be involved at FLC. I witnessed how God works in these different ministries, and how wonderful it is when different ministries serve together with mutual support and encouragement. We dare not take any credit for what we do, but we long to see God’s transformative work in the lives of those who call him Lord. May all the glory and honour be to our heavenly Father, the one who is always kind and merciful to us.

Looking Ahead

We humbly pray for:

  1. a more acute awareness of the counselling and psychological educational needs within the Chinese communities;
  2. a closer tie with Chinese church leaders so as to be more helpful in serving the churches;
  3. a wider reception amongst spiritual leaders of our personality tests for people in ministry;
  4. more retired and gifted pastors  to join our PRM; and
  5. the continued provision of operational expenses, volunteers and prayer warriors.

 


感恩及代禱 Thanksgiving & Prayer

 

  1. 我們祈求香港的動盪會在短期內和平解決,也為在香港和世界各地因這局勢遭受痛苦和困擾的許多人和家庭祈禱。願神的愛,公義,和平與和解賜予我們所有人。
  2. 請祈求神呼召合適的同工加入教牧更生事工服事。
  3. 感謝您一直以來對這個事工的支持。請為晨光的需要更多定期的經濟支持新增同工代禱。

 

  1. We pray for a peaceful resolution to the turmoil in Hong Kong soon and for the many people and families in Hong Kong and around the world that have been pained and distressed by the situation. May His love, justice, peace and reconciliation be bestowed upon us all.   
  2. Please pray for appropriate workers to be called to join and serve on the Pastors Renewal Ministry.
  3. We are thankful for your continuing support of this ministry and please pray for more regular financial support for the addition of counsellors.

晨光父母成长课程 2020

 

为人父母首先需要好好了解自己,了解婚姻生活的互动和父母的价值观如何影响家庭的方向,如何影响父母的教养立场并如何影响孩子的成长。

父母的角色伴随着新生命的诞生而开启,亲子关系是人生最奇妙最甜美最丰实然而也是最富挑战的一份情谊连接。她不仅诠释了父母自己在成长中所形成的亲子依附模式,而且也蕴含了和整合了自己与孩子在各自不同的生命阶段里发展和变化的力量。

2020年的晨光父母成长系统课程强调提升父母的个人自我觉察力与自我成长,增强父母的合作养育,强调和呼吁父亲的积极参与以提升父亲的角色投入,从而带来教养的效率和优质的家庭生活

在第一学期《为人父母必修课》中,我们要来认识父母角色的内涵和对孩子的影响意义,讨论父母如何合作养育并关注双亲角色的不同扮演在子女成长中的积极因素;讨论并认识父母自身人格的形成因素以及情绪特质,学会辨识与有效管理情绪,从而能够身体力行地做好榜样,加深亲职教育对孩子的影响,使孩子们能从容地面对不断更新的世界。

在第二、三、四学期中,我们将系统地学习和了解儿童从0-18岁如何经历了婴儿期、幼儿期、学龄儿童到青少年发展的历程,在全人发展的范畴里:生理发展、认知发展、情绪发展、社会性发展和道德发展五个方面,深入地了解孩子在不同阶段的需要和探讨最优的教养策略。

欢迎家有0-18岁孩子的父母一同参来探索,用爱心与智慧来扮演好人生中这一重要角色。在晨光的父母成长系统课堂里您将与其他的父母一起学习自我鼓舞、自我激励,欣赏肯定自己的努力,在安全和相互支持的环境中,帮助自己成为愈来愈好的父母。
