East and West A Journey to Worship

東西文化的結合: 敬拜之旅

English 漢語(繁體字) 出生并成長在香港,這個東西文化融合的地方,造就了我獨特的敬拜的經驗。不同文化的碰撞讓我在不同文化之間徘徊。然而,上帝卻給了我足夠的空間去探索。隨著年齡的增長,信念也逐漸形成。回顧經驗,看到上帝的恩典連接不同階段的經驗,充分準備我在達拉斯的華人教會及神學院參與服侍。 學習敬拜的起點 我印象中所參加的第一次敬拜是於1978年在受美國宣教士影響的華人教會舉行的禮拜。由於天主教中學的背景,使得我認為那次敬拜經驗像是「基督教的彌撒」。受到美南浸信會的影響,這教會保留傳統的詩歌本唱詩,詩班,以及長篇的講道。那時,我常需要調整坐姿,挺直背來保持清醒。然而美南浸信會的福音詩歌卻增添了敬拜的氣氛,使得整個崇拜經驗充滿喜樂和敬畏的心。每週日,便成為來到上帝面前獻上自己及默想神的時刻。那些美南福音詩歌激起了我對神的熱情,並且願意決志成為一名跟隨主的門徒。作為一個初信的基督徒,敬拜令我更加明白如何去認識並愛主我的神 (申 7:9)。 踏入大學的階段,現代音樂的風潮讓我對自由敬拜燃起了熱情。樂隊而非詩班,成為了當時的流行做法。一個來自美國學園傳道會名為 (Cross Road) 的敬拜樂隊在學校的露天劇場帶來的一場自由敬拜引領了當時的新風潮。敬拜成為讓人經歷並且轉向神的方式。 敬拜團和觀眾之間的互動以及自然的情感流露將我們的情緒推入高潮。同時,韓國敬拜團的動作詩歌 (action songs) 也帶來了震撼性的效果。在學校的露天劇場上,在眾多路過的學生面前,崇拜者隨著音樂高聲的讚美,並且隨著歌聲作出各樣自然的敬拜動作。“來啊,我們要俯伏敬拜,在造我們的耶和華面前跪拜” (詩篇95:6)。敬拜不僅僅是音樂和聲音的結合,更多是融合了肢體語言和心靈的奉獻。跪下,禱告,都在表達年輕心靈中最深層的吶喊。在禱告中混合著敬拜,認罪,感恩,和代求。…
