The End of the Beginning 开始的结束

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
(Winston Churchill, November 1942)

After eighteen and a half years of writing weekly blogs, Sunday bulletins will no longer greet you on your way in to church next week. What you hold in your hand is truly, absolutely, and definitely, the last copy. There won’t be bulletins anymore when we start the new year. No Sunday blog in print, no paged stuff about future events or sermons, no printed information about who’s who in Skyline and which connect group meets where. We’re saving the trees, doing our bit for the planet and reducing waste. From now on, we are going fully digital in connecting with you each week!

SkyHub starts next Sunday as a person-friendly one phase information and connection centre. Got any questions? Go to SkyHub. If you’d like to just ask what’s coming up in Skyline, go ask our cheery helpers at SkyHub. Alternatively connect to Skyline App or follow us on Facebook or Instagram. You can even log on to our website. Connecting with visitors and Skyliners in more personal ways is what we seek to do well!

On this last Sunday of the year, I would like to wish each and every one a Happy New Year! As the old year ends and a new begins, old ways must give way to the new! Only Jesus is our first and last! He said: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end” (Revelation 22:13). Everything starts and ends with Him. Only He is eternal. Everything else must change!

这不是结束,甚至不是结束开始,而可能是开始的结束
(丘吉尔,1942年11月)

在写了18年半的周报之后,从下星期开始,当您步入教会时就不再有周报欢迎您。现在您手上所握着的确实、绝对也肯定是最后一份周报。当我们迈入新的一年时,我们将不再会有周报了。我们不再需要打印周报,也不再有单张告诉您关于来临的活动或证道,又或是关于Skyline领袖或联系小组的聚会地点的册子。我们选择保护树林,为地球尽一份力并减少资源的浪费。从现在开始,每周日我们将以数码化的方式与您联系。

SkyHub将由下星期日开始启动,它将会是一个非常易于使用的一站式资讯和联系中心。您有任何疑问吗?请到SkyHub。如果您想知道接下来Skyline将会有什么活动,请到SkyHub咨询充满喜乐的助手。您也可以使用Skyline的应用程序或追踪我们的社交媒体: 面子书 (Facebook) 或Instagram。您甚至可以浏览我们的网站去查询。然而,以更个人的方式与新朋友和Skyline会员联系,都是我们一直想要做得更好的!

在今年的最后一个星期日,我想在此恭祝大家新年快乐!当旧的一年结束并迎来新一年的交替时,旧的方式亦该让位给新的!唯有耶稣是我们的首先和末后!祂说:“我是阿拉法,我是俄梅戛;我是首先的,我是末后的;我是初,我是终。(启示录22:13)。一切都始于祂也终于祂。唯有祂是永恒的。其他任何事都要改变!

Ps Dr Philip Lyn 医生牧师
