暴風雨前夕

人在英國,有爸爸和朋友告訴我,香港八號風球了。

這暴風當然不只是literal,更是metaphorical。友人苦訴某些親北京人士的言論如何叫人嘔心,面對著北京,我們不知香港的希望在哪裡。

今天,剛巧是第一天上 Karl Barth lecture,由巴特學者 Paul Nimmo 任教,我期待已久!

課堂完結時,Paul 引了巴特臨死的時候向他的摯友 Eduard Thurneysen 說︰「不要哀聲嘆氣,來!不要!因為天下所有事,不論在莫斯科、華盛頓,或在北京也好,都是由在上的掌權,完全由天上的掌權。」

“Just don’t be so down in the mouth, now! Not ever! For things are ruled, not just in Moscow or in Washington or in Peking, but things are ruled – even here on earth- entirely from above, from heaven above.”

感覺這完全是向我這個香港人說的。

學生時期唱 With Jesus in the boat we can smile at the storm,我相信是真的,但一點也不容易。
