紐西蘭原住民毛利人用Tāmaki Makaurau這個詞來稱呼該國最大的城市,其意義為「愛人的土地」。位於奧克蘭市的主和諧教會,正努力讓這座城市變成屬於「主」愛人的土地。因此,今年主和諧教會決定要到世上尋找更多主的愛人,藉此慶祝國際性的愛的節日─情人節。


今年的情人節剛好跟中國的情人節同一天,都在農曆新年第15天的元宵節。比照歐洲傳統,中國情侶也會在這天慶祝,此外,有些尚未找到對象的人則會安排相親活動來慶祝,而主和諧教會的成員們也有相親活動,就是讓世上的人們和聖子主配對。

  

 

當地的燈會就在離教會不遠的亞伯公園舉辦,整個會場人聲鼎沸,真是個黃金漁場,所以主和諧教會的會員們去到那裡傳福音、捕撈生命。

  

 

教會也藉由成為聖子的身軀來慶祝情人節,聖子是多麼愛著他的新婦,但是因為祂是肉眼看不見的靈,所以需要透過有肉體的人來展現祂偉大的愛。活動當中,每個人都會從帽子中抽出一個名字,成為那個人的祕密情人,這項任務是為了讓每個人感受到他們真正的愛人─聖子對每個人火熱的愛。因此在情人節這天,聖子透過主和諧教會成員的身軀送給每位新婦巧克力、請他們吃大餐、也寫詩送給他們。在情人節這天,真心真摯又永恆的愛在奧克蘭主和諧教會裡熊熊燃燒。


今年是愛聖子之年,剛好也是十二生肖中的木馬年。據說木馬年是浪漫的一年,會有一個美好的婚姻,也會早生貴子。我們相信2014年,不管在紐西蘭還是全世界都會是火熱愛聖子的一年,也會舉辦帥氣的婚宴並誕生出許多生命。


The name the indigenous people of New Zealand, the Maori, use for the nation’s largest city is Tāmaki Makaurau, which means ‘The Land Of Many Lovers’. The Lord’s Harmony church is working hard to make Auckland city the land of many lovers of the Lord! So, this year the church decided to celebrate the international day of love, Valentine’s Day, by going out to find more people to love the Lord.


This year, Valentine’s Day fell on the same day as the Chinese Valentine’s Day, which is the 15th Day of the Chinese New Year celebrations and the day of the Lantern festival. Similar to European tradition, on this day the Chinese celebrate love between couples, but also, the Chinese celebrate by matchmaking those who are yet to find someone to love. The members of the Lord’s Harmony Church also went out to do some matchmaking – they went out to match people with the Lord!

  

 

The local Lantern Festival was held in Albert Park, not far from church. It was overflowing with people – a golden fishing ground! So the members of The Lord Harmony Church went there to evangelise and catch lives. 

  

 

The church also celebrated Valentine’s Day by becoming the bodies of love of the Holy Son. The Holy Son has so much love for His brides but, as an invisible spirit, needs to work through a body in order to reveal His great love. So each person picked a name out of a hat and became someone’s ‘secret Valentine.’ The mission was to make that person feel the burning love of her true lover, the Holy Son. Therefore, on Valentine’s Day, using the bodies of the members of the Lord Harmony Church, the Holy Son gave His brides chocolates, bought them meals, sent them poems and much more! True, sincere, eternal love was burning brightly on Valentine’s Day in The Lord’s Harmony Church in Auckland! 


This year is the year of loving the Holy Son and, according to the Chinese zodiac, is also the year of the wooden horse. The year of the wooden horse is believed to be a romantic year and a good one for marriage and giving birth to children. We believe that in New Zealand and throughout the world 2014 will be a year of loving the Holy Son in a fiery way, holding a splendid wedding banquet and giving birth to many new lives!
