The Mrs Mok Hing Yiu Lecture is an annual series of lectures sponsored by CPF under Mrs Rita Mok’s name and organised by the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui subsidiaries. The lecture series explores contemporary issues from the Christian theological perspective.
The Religious Education Resource Center (RERC) organised the lectures in June & July 2015. Dr Timothy Ko 高偉雄博士 from the USA discussed how to resolve conflicts in “Spiritual Refreshment.”
In September & October 2016, Father Anselm Grün from Germany delivered his words of wisdom on replacing negative thoughts with positive possibilities, a spiritual understanding of dreams, spiritual care of medical professionals, and spirituality of counsellors. A total of 17 lectures were organised by RERC.
Every person, especially youth, has to face numerous challenges in life and to learn how to deal with them. A well respected pastor has said, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” An emotional healthy person is someone who is able to tackle problems, resolve conflicts, build strong relationships, and recover from failures and adversity, trauma and stress. With the support of CPF, we are excited to have Dr. Timothy Ko leading workshops about emotional intelligence for people of different ages and backgrounds. He is an experienced clinical counselor and a Christian writer of several inspiring books. His talks provided people with more tools for coping with difficult situations and maintaining a positive life. They are equipped to remain focused, flexible, and creative in bad times as well as good.
