Early Retirement

Pseudonymous

If you’re like me, you dream of the day when you retire. Or better yet, the day when you win the lottery so that you can retire early (Bonus: you’re young enough to actually enjoy it). You know what I’m talking about: the day when you are free to do whatever you want, whenever you want, and have the means to do it. After all, isn’t that what we labor so hard for? We work 40+ hours a week, invest in RRSPs so that one day we can retire with our nest egg and take it easy. After all, didn’t God tell us to be good stewards of money?

提早退休

Pseudonymous | 中文翻譯:蔡穎

也許你象我一樣夢想著退休後的生活。或更棒的是,當你中了樂透彩劵,就可以提早退休了,而且額外的好處是你還夠年輕,可以享受生活。你明白我的意思:就是可以在任何時間、任何地點、有足夠的財產做任何你希望做的事。這不正是我們天天努力工作想得到的嗎?我們一星期工作四十個小時以上,將薪水投資到註冊退休儲蓄計畫裡(RRSP)讓我們有一天能在儲蓄金窩裡退休享受。畢竟,上帝不是要我們做金錢的好管家嗎?

Christ-centred Compassion

H. Lo

I went to East Africa this past summer for several weeks doing community development work in two villages, one in Kenya and one in Ethiopia. I had just joined staff with a humanitarian non-governmental organization (NGO) and so I went on this trip to get an idea of the kind of project I would be taking Canadians on in the near future.

In Kenya, we built a dormitory for teachers who walked 4 hours a week to work and worked on implementing a new sprinkler system for the farm in the village. In Ethiopia, we built a school in a Somali village.

It was a life-impacting trip, but I didn’t get any explosive, life-altering moments.

以基督為中心的慈善

H. Lo | 中譯:趙泰和 

去年夏天我到非洲東部的兩個村莊裡做了幾個星期的社區發展工作,一個村莊在肯尼亞,另一個在埃塞俄比亞。我當時剛加入一個非政府的人道主義組織(non-governmental organization 或 NGO),這次出行正好讓我瞭解以後帶其它加拿大人去應該開展甚麼樣項目。 

在肯尼亞,我們蓋了一間宿舍,給那些一星期須要走四個小時去上班的當地老師們住。我們還幫助村莊裡的農場安裝新的灌溉系統。在埃塞俄比亞,我們在一個索馬裡族人的村子裡建了一所學校。 

那是一次影響一生的旅行,但我沒經歷到甚麼驚天動地、改變生命的時刻。

Welcome

"Double-edged"is bilingual blog in affiliation with Truth Monthly, a Chinese Christian monthly print publication based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

This blog features mostly original writings as well as comics, poetry, and other works of art by local Christian young adults.

For more information or to submit your own writing, please email tm.double.edged@gmail.com

Why “Double-edged?”

The name speaks of, not only the biblical reference from Hebrews 4:12, but also of a generation of young adults who are bilingual and bicultural. This blog would be the connecting point and gateway into these two cultures--from a Christian perspective. It is our prayer that, through this blog and its articles, young adults will turn to God and be strengthened in their faith.
