QTOS will return in June

You probably notice that this blog has not been updated for a while now. This is because Ps.Shiu is on sabbatical for six months since last December. During this time we maintained QTOS’s quiet time but since there was no Ps.Shiu’s message, we didn’t record the quiet time period.

QTOS will be “off” for April and May until June 7th. But some bro/sis still like to spend some quiet time together on the same time & same location at SCAC. You are welcome to join them (if you are in the Seattle area).

QTOS blogging: taking a vocation

FYI, QTOS blogging will be taking a vocation for approx. a month as all technical volunteer(s) will be on vocation.
However please note that “Physical” QTOS will still be operating @ SCAC Sunday school time during this time.

由於大多數技術義工將會旅遊, 所以QTOS博客將暫停更新約一個月。但在此期間, 正常QTOS仍然會在SCAC主日學時間進行。

靜聽主言

學習神的話,主要透過兩個渠道,一個是研讀 ,另一個是聆聽,兩者並非完全分割,只是重點不同,且是互相補足的。研經 (包括主日學,BSF,及各種聖經講座) 是我們常用的讀經方法,而聆聽的操練則較陌生,QTOS (Quiet Time On Sunday) 的重點,則是這方面的學習。

聆聽的方法其實很簡單,所以方法並非重點,重點是心態,和對神的正確認知與信念,這點會在堂上講解,這裡簡單把方法列出如下:

1.  第一次靈聽:

留意經文中那一個字或詞句,吸引著你的注意力,讓你的注意力停留在那個字或詞句上。

2.  第二次聆聽:

讓這個字或詞句繼續在你心中觸動著你,留意那個字或詞句吸引你的原因,注意內心被牽引出來的感受,嘗試體會你內心感覺到甚麼。

3.  第三次聆聽:

繼續停留在這個吸引你的字或詞句,留意神是否透過這個字或詞句,透過你內心的感覺,對你說些甚麼?透過這段經文,給你甚麼信息。

結束:讓你的感受和體會,成為你與神談話的內容,這時,你有甚麼話想對神說呢?有甚麼渴求,想神給你的呢?

Reminder: 2012.09.29 one day retreat – Recover Your Life

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” ( Matthew 11:28-30 ) 

~Recover Your Life ~

Dear all,

The theme of the coming one day retreat will be “Recover your life”~

This one day retreat are not going to ADD more knowledge to you, instead, this will be a restful time for you. At least, this is our intention… Come join us, enjoy some quiet time for yourself; walk along the lake… sit silently in a quiet corner.. listen to the bird singing… just breath and rest…

We will have 2 sessions of quiet time with yourself, we will have a short message from Pastor Shiu, will have lunch together and some sharing time toward the end of the day. Not a usual setting for brothers/sisters in church but this might be what we are longing for: a support community to walk and grow together in this journey.

All church are welcome. This retreat is not belong to SCAC. Email me (directly)  for more info or questions.

BWGI 3-1&2: 永生描述一種品質的生命 & 與父神的關係是禱告的最大因素

(From Ps. Shiu)

Dear All,

This Sunday we’ll cover TWO readings, Readings 1 & 2 of Chapter 3.

Before reading the lessons, please first go to Youtube: BWGI 3-1, and BWGI 3-2.

Chapter 3 starts a NEW topic.  It talks about what is the importance and the UNIQUE role of God the Father to us.

Spend time to listen to Youtube.  Don’t just listen it once, but listen it a few times until you remember what Dr. Eckman says.  You might want to make some notes.  Then go to the book and read through the TWO readings.

This Sunday we’ll still meet in our place.  See you all.

Ps. Shiu
