Women''s League Evangelical Rally Attracts over 1,000 Participants
The Hong Kong Sheng Kung Women’s League held its Evangelical Rally at St Andrew’s Church Life Centre on 24 October with the theme “Walking with God on the Road of Grace: Challenge and Transformation.” More than 1,100 people attended the rally. At the end of the rally, 75 people professed that Jesus is their Lord.
Keynote speaker at the rally, Ms Shirley Loo, said that contemporary women are challenged psychologically by four “losses”: the loss of approbations because of one’s appearance, the loss of relationships because of breaking up with friends, the loss of effeminacy because of menopause, and the loss of control in life because of close relatives’ deaths. All these challenges must be faced, she said. Should women ignore these challenges, it would be easy for them to become addicted to other things, such as shopping. She said the woman who had been suffering from a haemorrhage for twelve years in the Gospel according to St Mark was wiser than men because she continued to seek help. She had heard about Jesus and she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” Immediately her haemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. Our faith is about relationship, Shirley said, and that relationship must be built on meeting with Jesus face-to-face.
Sharing with the Revd Cindy Kwok about her faith, actress Nancy Sit Ka Yin said that she finds that confusion is a common emotion in her profession as an actress and in her daily life. From her experience, she said, the only way to keep calm in the face of confusion is to find the right person to lead her, and that right person is God.
Having gone through several major crises in her life, Nancy said that she finds God’s support through prayers.
