從團體生活中尋找天主 Seek God Through Community Life


由於有人力資源及領導培育的專業背景,我對研究「滿足個人需求」這一個題目十分有興趣。「個人需求」影響人的行為及作的決定,例如,有人會選擇留在現在工作的公司是因為好的同事,又或者選擇去轉換工作環境拿取更豐厚的薪水。在宗教團體的情況,「個人需求」就會決定一個人是否積極參與團體的工作,又或者喜歡「蜻蜒點水式」去不同的教堂,就是為了尋找那一處「完美」的落腳點。

一個團體怎樣才能去滿足全部人的需求呢?  其實差不多是沒有可能的。與其專注去滿足所有人的「個人需求」,倒不如去將注意力集中於團體的培育上面。

人,從來都是被正能量所吸引。我認為,一個「完美」的落腳點就是一個可以感受到愛、喜樂、及和平的地方。我想,沒有人想會離開這麼美好的地方吧!  一個團體如果有深刻的信仰,緊緊地跟隨著主的步伐,以及實踐主的聖言,就必能創造出一個「完美」的落腳點給信眾。這樣的一個團體亦能幫助教友提昇信德,拓展人生的練歷,在主內活出完滿的生命。

一個團體能供給人所需的,但是它也需要人。如果你還沒找到你靈屬的團體,或許你該問問自己:  「我該繼續尋找那完美的落腳點呢,還是應該去為自己營造一個更好的團體? 」我在積極參加團體活動及服務時,覺得團體生活讓我更能靠近天主。當我們將我們的「個人需求」拋諸腦後,全心全靈全意尋找天主時,在那尋找的路途上其實天主就一直與我們同在。

願你也能找到那屬於你的落腳點並得到內心的平安。

主佑,

凱欣

 


 

Due to my background in Human Resources and Leadership Development, one area that always interests me is how to meet individual’s needs.  An individual’s needs guide a person to behave in one way over another, i.e. to remain at a company for its great coworkers versus moving to a new job for higher pay.  In the perspective of a religious community, individual needs determine whether a Christian actively participates in a one community or organization, versus the preference to church hopping continually seek for that “perfect” place.

How does a community meet everyone’s needs?  It is almost an impossible thing to do.  Rather than focusing to meet the needs of individuals, I found that the answer may just be shift the focus on community development. 

Positive energy draws in people.  In my own opinion, the “perfect” place where we all want to be is where one can feel the presence of love, joy and peace.  It would be a place I do not want to leave.  A community with strong faith in God, following His path and carrying out His words creates this “perfect” place for its members.  Such community can elevate a Christian’s faith and expand his or her experience to live in God to the fullest.

A community provides for the people, but also needs the people.  If you are one of those who still have not found your place in a community, maybe you should ask yourself the question:  do you want to continue to search for that “perfect” place, or would you rather to make a place more “perfect” for yourself?  I found that actively participating, helping and living my Christian life in a community brings me closer to God.  Only when we leave ourselves (or our individual needs) behind to search for God, then we will see and find God throughout that entire journey.

May you find where you belong and be at peace.

In Him,

Helen
