Greg和Stephen — 捐贈腎臟的友誼

Greg Hatteberg和Stephen Bramer已是超過25年的摯友。他們於1997年在達拉斯神學院相遇。Greg於1984年成為學生,後來在招生辦公室工作,現在擔任校友服務執行主任。Stephen在1992年前來DTS進修博士學位,經過在加拿大的事奉後,於1997年回到DTS擔任聖經部門教授。在DTS共事多年中,Greg和Stephen建立了一種兄弟情誼。當Stephen邀請Greg一起領導聖地旅遊時,這兩位兄弟的工作擴展到了校園之外,因為Greg已經多次去過那裡,並且與Charles Dyer博士合著了《基督徒聖地旅遊指南》(The Christian Traveler’s Guide to the Holy Land, 2014年現行版)。這兩位兄弟在困難時刻互相祈禱,包括Greg照顧妻子Sally(多發性硬化症患者),直到她在2018年去世。這一段的兄弟情誼充滿了笑聲、聖經研讀和對學生和同事的互相關心。 然而,在2022年初的一天午餐時,一次對話開始展現了令人驚嘆的兄弟之愛,從這兩位朋友身上輻射出來,彰顯出耶穌吩咐祂的門徒應該活出的那種愛:「我賜給你們一條新命令,乃是叫你們彼此相愛;我怎樣愛你們,你們也要怎樣相愛。你們若有彼此相愛的心,眾人因此就認出你們是我的門徒了。」(約翰福音13:34-35)。那天午餐時,Greg望著他的朋友說:「你看起來不太好,一切都還好嗎?」 「嗯,其實不太好,」Stephen說。「我的腎功能指數不理想,如果持續下降,我就需要新的腎臟。」 「我可以檢查一下是否與我的血型相符,」Greg回答道。「如果我是你的合適捐贈者,我會捐贈我的腎臟給你。」 Stephen感到震驚和不可思議,他知道這是一個非常嚴肅和危險的決定。但是,他也知道這正是真正的兄弟之愛,而Greg必須要為此做出如此偉大的犧牲。…
