相信大家也認同 2020 是很特別的一年。有誰能想像在一年前的今天,我們現在的生活模式會變成這樣?或許當時我們聽過很多關於這個病毒的 "謠傳",但始終遠在太平洋的另一端,仿佛離我們很遙遠。但當確診數字在全球上升成為日常,驚恐臨到每人當中,再加上不同的政治氣候,我聽見身旁最多人說的話是:「2020 快點過去吧! 」 但我心想 2020 的過去,2021 的來臨,真的代表現在的一切都會過去,重回我們疫情前的正常生活嗎?

相信 2020 給我們的學習功課是 - 不是所有東西都在你控制(Control) 範圍內。還記得 2020 年的 1 月中,正是我放年假的時候,在電台辛勞工作了整整一年,是時候「放大假」回港探望哥哥一家了。每年也很期待這個「充電」時刻,當然也希望和很久未見的親戚和老死(編者註:老朋友之意)敘敘舊,去不同的地方購物等等。但正所謂計劃追不上變化,回港後一星期疫情便開始轉變,後兩星期也困在哥哥的家裡! 心想:打工仔最注重的 Annual Leave,就這樣浪費掉嗎? 由於當時口罩很短缺,不想隨便浪費。每天的日常變成和家人一同上網「撲口罩」和購買日用物資等等 (但通常都不太成功)!

當時在溫哥華的弟兄姊妹和同事都說很同情我的經歷,但其實我想說是 - 雖然「天氣不似預期」,但我很感謝神給我這一段奇妙經歷。老實說,我跟姪女和姪子見面的次數,若以我每次回港的次數為一次的計算,真的一隻手的手指數量也數得盡。但今次的「困局」,使我可以和分別 4 歲和 1 歲多的他們天天玩樂,是我出乎意料外的嚮往。再加上疫情令哥哥和嫂嫂也留在家中工作,使原本預期不能多見的旅程變成天天互動,可算是神的恩典。或許很多事情都在你控制範圍以外,但你能在"以外"的事情找到神的恩典嗎? 放下 Control,細心觀察自己生命裡的人和事,或許能更加感受神的恩典。

而在控制範圍以外的另一個層面,便是尋求其他方法 Alternative。這基本上也是 2020 年活著的主題。試想想如果在教會和工作上不尋求改變,或許最終也會被自然淘汰。還記得疫情開始在溫哥華爆發的時候,教會也要閉門並停止實體的敬拜。教牧、同工、領袖和執事們都承受不少突如其來的壓力。 因為這沒有什麼經驗之談可言。感謝神給教會一班忠心的影音部弟兄姊妹不斷努力、改進,再加上事奉團隊的配合,讓我們這個Alternative (由最初的線上崇拜到現在的錄影崇拜) 可行。而團契小組只是停了一個月也變成了網上聚會。

我作為敬拜小組的領唱,2020 的事奉很有挑戰。因為社交距離的關係,除了和司他(編者註:教會司吉他)外,整年也只是和其他隊員合作過一次。在現場只對著事奉人員領唱,感覺也是怪怪的,但這都是必需的。而最近一次因為疫情數字高企而決定的錄影崇拜,感謝神能讓我在電台工作上學到的聲帶剪接混音技術,完完全全運用在製作敬拜的當中。而在自己工作上,因為一些變動而接觸了不同的崗位。例如多了一個關於動物的新節目等等。但對於一名沒有很多飼養寵物經驗的我來說,也只能努力地憑信心面對,現在這「新」節目也做了大半年了! 實行不同的 Alternatives 不一定會一帆風順,還可能碰很多的壁,而踏出你的 Comfort Zone (舒適圈) 也是必然。而當神呼召你行 Alternatives 的時候,你有信心神會像足印的故事和你一同經歷嗎?

我們都是小信的人,特別在一些不在我們控制範圍內的事情。或許很多人在 2020 覺得神很沉默,但我深信神是掌管所有的神。只是祂的時間不是我們預期的時間。當我們希望在 2021 Restart 的時候,我們需要 Delete 對神的疑惑。你有沒有想過神希望透過 2020 給你什麼功課? 或許當我們在混亂中好好停下來回顧並親近神,才能知道祂的美意。我相信這也是基督徒生命在世的大功課。

要常常喜樂,不住地禱告,凡事謝恩,因為這是 神在基督耶穌裏向你們所定的旨意。(帖前 5:16-18)

其實「2020 年快點過去吧! 」的中心思想是盼望,期望明天會更好。而你知道誰掌管明天嗎? 希望我們一同 RESTART:Ctrl+Alt+Del 走過20‧重啟21,讓身旁的人看見我們與神同行,與眾不同的生命,使更多人認識主耶穌基督!
