用心

今天一个教会里的家庭请我和另外一对神学生夫妻去吃饭,说是要感谢我们在教会里的服事。——不要误会,他们既非教会的长老,也不是执事,只是参加了我们教导的主日学课程,同时也是现在主日学课程的老师。

吃饭的时候,我们就聊起了现在的事奉。我问弟兄,“教一堂圣经课,你需要备课几个小时?”

“我也不清楚,我还记得你教如何带领查经时说要备课至少六个小时,我发现我六个小时远远不够。”

我吃了一惊,“那你是怎么准备的呢?”

“XX弟兄给我唐崇荣牧师的雅各书解经录音,我每天听,听了两遍,加起来有几十个小时吧。然后再把雅各书读了三遍,然后再看解经书和注释本圣经,每天早上看,晚上也看。一堂课要备课十几个小时。结果还是说错话。”

用角色扮演学习圣经:加拉太书2:11-21

这是《课堂教学方法》一课的作业之一,已经在课堂和教会里都实践过一次,反映良好。注意事项:

  1. 事先将学生分成三组,每组要选出三人参与角色扮演,其他组员观察。
  2. 每组在角色扮演前要按照问题查经和讨论。
  3. 角色扮演不是话剧,话剧的台词是事先准备好并且背下来的。角色扮演的台词是自发的,不需要也不应该提前准备,表演者通过揣度角色的心境,在扮演时自发的说出台词。可能需要一些模拟场景的热身(例如,假设夫妻吵架、捡到巨款,观察角色扮演者是否能自发对话。)
  4. 三个场景表演完之后的总结和分享非常重要。邀请每个角色扮演者分享他的感受,并讨论总结部分中的三个问题。

A study of "Abundant Life”

“基督教教育学”作业

file_10_7Abundant Life is a Chinese Bible study curriculum designed for new believers in the church. It is widely used not only among Chinese churches in America, but also among patriotic churches and house churches in China because it’s officially published by TSPM (Three-Self Patriotic Movement, the organization sponsored by the communist government to oversee all patriotic churches) headquarter in Shanghai. In North America, the author requires that only leaders trained by them can use the curriculum as a teacher. But due to the large number of churches in China, this requirement cannot work thus they published has both student’s workbook and teacher’s manual in People’s Republic of China. The author is anonymous, but many people believe it’s written by Rev. Zongqing Chen who is now the president of Blessing Cultural Mission Fellowship.

This curriculum is designed to help new believers in the church to learn Christian faith through 18 modules, starting from “What is a new life” till “Guided by God”. It covers basic doctrinal topics like repentance, faith, obedience, Bible, prayer, baptism, communion, church, etc. The author expects this curriculums being used in a Sunday school setting with committed students, or in a one-on-one based discipleship setting. The Chinese church that I’m currently attending on Half Day Road is using this curriculum in Sunday school and some cell groups.
