最近国内有不少城市下了暴雨,不仅造成了城市交通的不便,严重的更威胁到了人们的生命.相信大家都有亲戚朋友在国内, 不管在哪个城市, 都希望他们能够平平安安. 我们在远方也会为他们祷告,希望神保守看顾我们的家人朋友,也保守我们的城市和国家.
在这周的活动中,我们会围绕“爱”这个话题进行讨论.爱, 不仅仅是对我们的家人, 朋友, 更多的是对我们身边的人, 甚至是我们的对手或敌人.在马太福音第章的最后一段经文中, 耶稣教导我们应该怎样去对待我们的得罪我们, 甚至迫害我们的人.当耶稣说“你们要完全，像你们的天父完全一样”（太5：48）时，祂在指什么呢？我们怎么样去爱我们的敌人呢？这次我们将继续分成小组进行学习与讨论，欢迎有兴趣的同学继续加入我们的讨论哦~~ MCCF会一直期待每周五与大家的约会,还是不见不散哦~~
Dear brothers and sisters:
Thank you all for waiting! We sent out the newsletter a bit of late this week, hope you all didn’t think fellowship was cancelled~
Recently there have been many thunderstorms in China, which have not only disrupted the transportation within cities; these storms have caused many casualties. We know that all of us have families and friends back in China, and we sincerely hope that regardless of which city they are in, they all will be safe. Here in Canada, we will be praying for everyone, and praying that God may keep our family and friends, as well as watch over our nation.
This week we will be having a group discussion on the topic of “love”. This love is not only directed towards our families and friends, it is directed towards our rivals and enemies. In the last section of Matthew Chapter 5, Jesus teaches us how to treat those who have wronged us in the past. Jesus had said “be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). What did He mean? How do we love our enemies? This Friday, we will be having a group discussion around this section of the Scripture, and as always, we welcome you to join us! See you then!
