時代議題和基督信仰的反思

信仰與時代

 

美國總統奧巴馬的國會國情演說中,有一個主題非常突出,也非常有意思,就是

Win the future: 贏得將來。

加強競爭力是國際大題目。

我也想華人教會如何為神贏得將來呢?

6 times: win the future

Future: 15 times

Winning the future: 3 times

The steps we've taken over the last two years may have broken the back of this recession - but to win the future, we'll need to take on challenges that have been decades in the making

The future is ours to win. But to get there, we can't just stand still. As Robert Kennedy told us, "The future is not a gift. It is an achievement." Sustaining the American Dream has never been about standing pat. It has required each generation to sacrifice, and struggle, and meet the demands of a new age. Now it's our turn. We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world. We have to make America the best place on Earth to do business. We need to take responsibility for our deficit, and reform our government. That's how our people will prosper. That's how we'll win the future. And tonight, I'd like to talk about how we get there.

演說中也提到兩個例子:

一間破爛的中學的重建。

一間工程公司在智利的拯救行動的參與:33日,33人。

很有意思。
