  宗教在当今社会的尴尬地位

  "I'm spiritual but I'm not religious" is now a commonplace among people in Britain, the majority of whose population live their lives without reference to organised religion. In my role as an Anglican priest, I meet significant numbers of people who are on the cusp of leaving the church or on the cusp of wondering whether there's anything in it - people who are very unsure about the role faith or religious practice should or does have in contemporary society. I met a woman recently who works in the NHS who said that she found it a lot easier to say to work colleagues that she was gay than a Christian, as it was hard to be associated with the church in this generation.

  “我有精神信仰,但我不信宗教”,这是英国民众当下的口头禅,大部分英国民众都不参加有组织的宗教活动。作为英国国教牧师,我遇到过相当一部分英国民众正游离于远离教会的边缘或正在思考宗教到底有些什么内容 -- 他们怀疑宗教活动或者宗教信仰在当代社会到底有什么作用,或者应该起一个什么样的作用。我最近碰到个在NHS工作的女性,她说与其跟同事说自己信教,还不如说自己是个同性恋来的好理解,因为这一代人很难跟教会产生共鸣。

  希望—西方文明的基石

  More recent and disturbing history will be reviewed this week by a court in Oslo. While Anders Behring Breivik will present his own warped view of reality, victims and bereaved families will confront again the terror of what actually happened. To resist simple vengeance, pursue justice and to relive the pain is a brave thing to do and shows in the words of the commentator Libby Purves that "the default setting of Western civilisation is not hatred or fear but hope".Perhaps, part of that default setting of hope stems from our Judaeo-Christian history. The last steel ingot from the Consett steelworks was made into a cross and is kept at a local Roman Catholic Church. It represents for me the pain of the past but also hope for the future.It is tempting to despair for the future of the world, in a time of financial insecurity and mindless terrorism. Yet history does remind me that human communities of justice and love still triumph.

  这周奥斯陆法庭将会翻开最近一段纷扰的历史。尽管Anders Behring Breivik会继续歪曲事实,受害者和受害者家庭将为还原真实恐怖事件而战。不为复仇,只想讨回公道而自揭伤疤,这种行为是勇敢的,用评论员Libby Purves的话来说,“西方文明的本质不是仇恨或恐惧,而是希望。”可能,这种希望的本质部分来源于犹太-基督历史。Consett钢铁厂最后一块钢锭做成了一个十字架,现存于当地的一家罗马天主教堂里。对我来讲,这代表了过去的伤痛和对未来的希望。当遭遇财务危机或者无端恐怖事件时,人们很容易会对这世界的未来失望。但是,历史告诉我们,公道和爱终将胜利。

  爱的哲理

  Love Philosophy

  爱的哲理

  The fountains mingle with the river; And the rivers with the ocean,

  泉水流入江河江河与海洋汇聚,

  The winds of heaven mix forever with a sweet emotion;

  空中的清风彼此吹拂满怀着柔情蜜意。

  Nothing in the world is single. All things by a law divine

  世上万物都不会形单影只,而是遵循着一条神圣规律

  In one another's being mingle. Why not I with you?

  将彼此的生命连在一起为什么你我生命不能如此?

  See the mountains kiss high heaven. And the waves clasp one another;

  看!山峰亲吻着天空,海浪也相互偎依,

  No sister-flower would be forgiven. If it disdained its brother:

  姐妹花将得不到谅解如果她瞧不起她的兄弟

  And the sunlight clasp the earth. And the moonbeams kiss the sea

  阳光拥抱大地,月华与海浪亲昵

  What are all these kissings worth? If you kiss not me?

  如果你不吻我,这一切又有什么意义?

  别把财富妖魔化

  The trouble about money is that it is often linked to power. Money well used can do greatthings which benefit many people, anything from funding the arts to bringing food and waterto a starving nation. It has great pragmatic possibilities. But there is another power which hasto do with the presumption that enough money should buy influence and assure control tothe benefit of those who are wealthy.As a Christian I could never demonise money. Jesusmentions it in half his parables. He relies on charitable giving especially from women, and he'sclearly at ease in the company of affluent people. There is nothing in the Jewish-Christiantradition or in any great world religion to my knowledge which says that money is intrinsicallybad. Nor can it be claimed that moral questions only rise when we consider the unhealthyaddiction some people have to accumulating wealth.The primary moral issue is whether indealing with wealth, we become less concerned about the good things our money can do, andmore convinced of the presumed synonym that money equals power.

  金钱经常与能力挂钩。钱使好了,可使很多人受益,譬如资助艺术,给饥荒国家提供食水等等,总之很具实用性。但钱还有另外一种能力,钱能带来影响力,可以保证富裕阶层的既得利益。作为一个基督徒,我从不把钱妖魔化。耶稣在他泰半的寓言故事中都提到了钱。他依靠别人,尤其女人的慈善捐助度日,而且很明显,他跟富人相处很自在。在犹太基督,或者世界上任何其他主流宗教传统中都没有说过钱不好。而且我们也不能说,聚富成瘾的人就一定会产生什么道德上的问题。其实关键问题是,面对金钱时,我们是否变得不再想着钱能做的好事,却越来越相信金钱就等于权力。
