The Brick

Monday, July 16th, 2012
讓我們以冷靜頭腦,無限愛心和廣闊胸襟待人處事,使主基督活現在我們身上。


The Brick!!!

PLEASE



Read It.

Read this today and

don't delete it
even

if

you are too busy!! You'll

see.

THE

BRICK

A young and successful

executive was traveling down a neighborhood street,

going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was

watching for kids darting out from between parked

cars and slowed down
when he thought he saw

something.

As his car passed, no children appeared.

Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door!

He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to

the spot where the brick had been thrown.

The angry

driver then jumped out of the

car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up

against a parked
car shouting,

'What was that all about and who are you? Just what

the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that

brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why

did you do it?' The young boy was apologetic.

'Please, mister…please, I'm sorry but I didn't

know what else to do,' He pleaded. 'I threw the

brick because no one else would stop….' With tears

dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth

pointed to a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my

brother, 'he said 'He rolled off the curb and fell

out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him

up.'

Now sobbing, the boy

asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help

me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and

he's too heavy for me.'

Moved beyond words,

the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling

lump in his throat… He hurriedly lifted the

handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took

out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh

scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything

was going to be okay. 'Thank you and may God bless

you,' the grateful child told the stranger. Too

shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy!

push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk

toward their home.

It was a long, slow

walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very

noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair

the dented side door. He kept the dent there to

remind him of this message: 'Don't go through life

so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to

get your attention!' God whispers in our souls and

speaks to our hearts Sometimes when we don't have

time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's

our choice to listen or

not.

Thought for the

Day:

If God had a

refrigerator, your picture would be on

it.

If He had a wallet,

your photo would be in

it.

He sends you flowers

every spring.

He sends you a sunrise

every morning Face it, friend – He is crazy about

you!

Send this to every

'beautiful person' you wish to

bless.

God didn't promise

days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun

without rain, but He did promise strength for the

day, comfort for the tears, and light for the

way.

Read this line very

slowly and let it sink

in…

If God brings you to

it, He will bring you through

it.

Pass this message to

seven people except you and

me.

You will receive a

miracle tomorrow

( just do
it)!

KIDS IN CHURCH



KIDS IN CHURCH

3-year-old Reese :
‘Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
Harold is His name.

Amen.’
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A little boy was overheard praying:
‘Lord, if you can’t make me a better boy, don’t worry about it.

I’m having a real good time like I am.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After the christening of his baby brother in church,
Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car.
His father asked him three times what was wrong.

Finally, the boy replied,
‘That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home,
and I wanted to stay with you guys.’


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


One particular four-year-old prayed,

‘And forgive us our trash baskets
as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they were on the way to church service,
‘And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?’
One bright little girl replied,
‘Because people are sleeping.’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3.
The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake.
Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson..
‘If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,

‘Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.’
Kevin turned to his younger brother and said,

‘ Ryan , you be Jesus !’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A father was at the beach with his children
when the four-year-old son ran up to him,

grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore
where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
‘Daddy, what happened to him?’ the son asked.
‘He died and went to Heaven,’ the Dad replied.
The boy thought a moment and then said,
‘Did God throw him back down?’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A wife invited some people to dinner.

At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,
‘Would you like to say the blessing?’

‘I wouldn’t know what to say,’ the girl replied.
‘Just say what you hear Mommy say,’ the wife answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said,
‘Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?’
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And if you don’t send this to at least 8 people —– who cares!
Peace, love and happiness




This is a Thomas Kinkade painting. It’s rumored to carry a miracle!
They say if you pass this on, you will receive a miracle.

I am passing this on because I thought it was lovely,

and besides, who couldn’t use a miracle?!

貧寒華人為何被女王冊封為貴族

Friday, July 6th, 2012
真是一個出污泥而不染激勵人心的好見證!您也可以做到的,因為有主的恩龐,在主內無不能的事!
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. (Proverbs 15:1)
愈顯主榮。在萬事萬物中尋找天主。

貧寒華人為何被女王冊封為貴族

今年35歲的韋鳴恩擁有一張很“中國”的英俊面孔,舉止儒雅而沉穩,說話語速很快,邏輯嚴謹。2010年夏天,他被英女王冊封為終身貴族。

“洗碗工”考上牛津大學

韋鳴恩祖籍廣東珠海,父母于上世紀70年代移民到了英國。 1977年1月19日,他出生在英國倫敦東區街道狹窄、房屋稠密的貧民窟。這裏居住的多是賣苦力的窮人和外來移民,是當年倫敦最危險的區域。

韋鳴恩讀書的貧民區學校,雖學費全免,但環境糟糕透頂。一些同學經常在教室裏打架、吸食可卡因,有一年甚至把學校一角給燒毀了。在這種充滿末世感的瘋狂氣氛中,韋鳴恩練就了一項“特異功能”:哪怕教室裏亂成一鍋粥,他依舊能泰然自若地伏案學習,絲毫不受干擾,還在課餘自學起了法語和德語。

韋鳴恩的父親在基督教教士團工作,收入微薄,母親在中餐館打工。讀中學後,韋鳴恩意識到父母的艱辛,每天放學後去刷盤子、洗車,假期則到幾十公里外的農場幹活兒,補貼家用。

有一次,韋鳴恩在一家西餐館洗碗時,忽然腹如刀絞,可他怕老闆說自己“偷奸耍滑”,不敢請假。20分鐘後,他昏倒在地,原來是得了急性闌尾炎。以嚴苛和“摳門”著稱的餐館老闆,被韋鳴恩的勤勞和堅毅打動了,不僅給他放了半個月帶薪病假,還多次帶禮物去慰問他,兩人成了忘年交。

兩個月後,老闆請他給自己的一雙兒女做家教,薪水是洗碗工的3倍。多年後,老闆的漂亮女兒考進劍橋大學,畢業後成了韋鳴恩的妻子。

1995年,韋鳴恩考入牛津大學,主修現代語言與德文。大學期間,韋鳴恩積極參加團體活動,還帶領同學到校外做義工,展露出超群的組織能力。

“大社會先生”贏首相青睞

1999年畢業後,韋鳴恩進入大名鼎鼎的麥肯錫公司負責公益創投與風險投資,還曾被派往亞洲、美國與非洲分公司獨當一面。

3年後,他的年薪加獎金已拿到近百萬美元,卻做出了一個令所有人吃驚的決定:辭去高薪職位,轉投到社會公共事務中去!“我一直在思考,到暮年回首往事時,我在世界上能留下什麼痕跡呢?我們已經有了比爾·蓋茨和巴菲特,但社會公益工作總要有人去做。我可以把自己的才能用在解決社會問題上,讓世界變得更美好。”

2002年,25歲的韋鳴恩與朋友魏道慈一起,創立了“以教為先”公益組織,吸收、培訓品學兼優的大學畢業生,鼓勵他們到偏遠地區從事教育工作,改變當地教育品質低下的狀況。9年後,“教育為先”被公認為英國最有名的教育培訓組織,英國前100名的上市公司幾乎都贊助過它。

英國社會人與人日漸疏遠、鄰里之間形同陌路的現狀,也讓韋鳴恩陷入了深思。“怎樣才能讓每一個公民都能積極融入社會,對生活充滿激情,並感覺到工作快樂、勞動光榮呢?”他分析體制弊端,逐漸形成了“大社會”理念。他覺得,政府包攬所有的社會責任,除成本昂貴外,還會減弱民眾參與社會工作的積極性,應該“放權於民”。2005年,他們組建了一系列有關教育、民生、人文關懷的公益組織,引導大家相互幫助、多做交流,形成鄰里之間關係和諧的社會共同體,韋鳴恩被稱為“大社會先生”。

2005年底,英國保守黨領導人卡梅倫首次約見韋鳴恩。卡梅倫早就用“破敗的社會”來形容英國,現代社會“各掃門前雪”的個人主義、高福利慣出的“依賴文化”,都讓他看不順眼,所以對這位政見相同的青年才俊十分賞識。很快,韋鳴恩加入保守黨並成為卡梅倫的智囊。

“落魄”的終身貴族

2010年,“大社會”項目被保守黨作為競選政綱向全國推出,得到了廣泛認可,保守黨贏得了執政權。出任首相的卡梅倫把“大社會”專案當作政府的正式決策在國內推行。韋鳴恩被委任為政府顧問,負責推廣。

每個週末的傍晚,倫敦南郊薩頓鎮的火車站,會有一輛綠色的小貨櫃車駛來,車身畫滿了可愛的蔬菜卡通,賣的番茄、芹菜、西蘭花等10多種蔬菜,全部產自鎮上一個社區農場。種菜、賣菜的都是志願者,賺到的錢都投入到農資農具的購買和貨車維護中。這一“大社會”計畫的專案,如今已在英國諸多城鎮推廣。

此外,人們下班後可以清掃自家門口的街道,或到社區服務中心、圖書館、福利院當志願者,既為財政吃緊的新政府減少開支,還能使整個社會充滿互幫互助的人情味兒,喚起民眾對生活的熱愛。

2010年6月,在卡梅倫的推薦下,女王封韋鳴恩為男爵,他成為繼鄧蓮如女男爵和曾秋坤勳爵後英國歷史上第三位華人貴族。前兩位被冊封時,均已年過半百,而韋鳴恩當時才33歲,是英國歷史上最年輕的終身貴族。隨後,韋鳴恩成為上議院終身議員。

首相顧問、終身貴族、上議員,這三個身份帶來的收益只是每次出席上議院會議,得到86.5英鎊的交通補貼。最落魄時,韋鳴恩的銀行帳戶上只剩下1000英鎊。2011年2月,韋鳴恩宣佈,他每週在內閣的工作時間縮短兩日,另謀一份職業養家糊口。為減少開支,他們一家四口從別墅中搬了出來,租住在政府提供的一間福利房內。
