Dear brothers and sisters,
May the peace of the Lord be with you!
We have just learnt that the Government’s electoral reform package was voted down by the Legislative Council. It is obvious that this outcome will not put an end to the polarized situation of our society. It will take time for wounds to be healed. Nevertheless, we must spare no effort in addressing the real causes behind this polarized situation, and we must continue to promote democracy, justice and the well-being of the people of Hong Kong.
As Christians, we are not alone, because Christ is always with us and for us. May I again invite you all to join me in prayer for the future of Hong Kong, asking for God’s blessings on her. Never underestimate the power of prayer!
