以史為鏡: History as a Mirror

歷史是祂的故事,日光之下沒有新事,但人類總是不能從歷史裡學到功課,使我們常常重蹈覆轍,歷史是一面鏡子,神將歷史留給我們, 目的是使我們能從歷史裡看見興與衰,成為我們的榜樣與警戒。

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung explains that History is His story — our Lord has left us numerous examples and warnings in history so we may learn from it.
