福源堂已面目全非!

  詩巫愛蓮街福源堂正在進行擴充與重修工作,內部的翻修幾時是全部重頭來過,只剩下外縠沒動,現在內部正在打土釘(樁)的如火如荼進行之中!
左圖是正在重修時影,很快的這面牆壁會被拆除加長的!
另一張是未裝修前影!

It is wonderful to know the latest development which is indicative of the wealth and great property management of the Sibu Methodist Church. You are building a proud and grand icon. Congratulations.

But as an older generation Methodist and a "small person", I miss the small home church which was meant for a small congregation - wooden pews, wooden cross, simple worship service - this is just nostalgia.

Masland has a different meaning for me.

Hi, Sarawakiana,
I agree what you say, we are all from village church and still in the memory lane of last century.
Actually we are not so agree to move all the historical buildings like Hoover House. We need to keep something in old style but it seems there are some real difficulty.
Masland Church and surrounding building will be very congested and left no much space anymore.
Missionaries from overseas seems diappoint when they see all the new and mordern building .....

yeah, I am disappointed to say the least.

I cried when I saw all my Childhood gone!!

My beloved Masland church where my grandparents on both sides worshipped, when so many of my relatives got married, where I had my school assembly...so cool and yet no aircon....and Dr.Coole preaching...etc...the whole island road area should have become a historical site of Sibu....if I am allowed to say my piece of mind...

That would really have been a tourist attraction centre..and people would place their money there to support the noble effort. I am sure of it.

but money.......

有時要作出取捨......
如果整個富雅格工程能在未來30年發揮它的功能,我想一樣可以沿繼美麗的歷史
在過去10年里,我們很多個肢體都不在我們聖堂范圍里聚會
如初成在16年里至少在3個地方轉來轉去(神學院,畢理學院....)
而我們的青團也是如此
成人主學都是沒有課室用,一定要事先協調課室等!!
從這個層次上來說,富雅格工程有它的意義!
未來,它在巿中心的功效是我們的挑戰(因為不能走像英國空殼子教會一樣)
至于金錢來說,我雖不完全讚成,但我相信神的恩典和無應,因為這也褔源堂弟兄姐妹信心之旅.從褔源堂擴堂2次以來,不曾向外來人施贈,我們盡可能教會里的弟兄姐妹自供自給....這也是神給褔源堂一個很大恩典.

有時候也會想是不是值得花這麼多錢去建一個教堂?我就想到馬大和馬利亞的故事,馬利亞用把極貴重的香水扎破給主抺,別人看來極浪費,但在主看內是馬利亞重視主的原故....

志偉,我是從保留傳統角度來看,
日前在北京參觀天主教堂,留下深劇印像;不只是百年老教堂,而且是隨時開放,其建築結構也很耐看,反觀咱們的教堂平常深門大鎖,說莊嚴又不夠......何況福源堂是在鬧市,應該有更多的空間,才能托出教堂的宏大來,擁擠的建築群給人壓迫感!當然這只是個人看法,不過很欣賞福源堂上下一心,沒有出外募捐,值得鼓勵與支持!

我也知道你是以保留傳統為出發點...
也確實,歷史也是重要.....
褔源堂有計劃開放聖堂
讓來往人可以到聖堂內安靜
希望可以落實......
