【以色列加利利湖】疲累時需要一片加利利湖

過去一星期密集的反送中遊行和熱烈的社會討論後,心有點累,需要一片海來沉澱一下。想起在塔加看到的加利利湖,平靜溫柔的湖水安撫了一個旅人疲累的步伐。旅行偶爾也需要一個放空的時間,舒緩奔走的節奏。

塔加是耶穌用五餅二魚餵飽五千人的所在地,現在蓋了一所五餅二魚堂 (Tabgha’s Church of Multiplication),地下的馬賽克還保存著餅和魚的圖畫。

五餅二魚馬賽克

走到附近的聖彼得首席堂(The Chapel of St. Peter)裡面,中間一塊炭火石就是耶穌復活第三次向門徒顯現,並以該岩石為桌,與門徒一起吃他親手準備的早餐,而彼得首席在此就職。

教徒在教堂外面聽道

教堂外面就是加利利湖,遠看淺藍色的湖水已經使人身心舒泰。順著心形石慢慢走近,銀灰色的小碎石形成了湖邊的散步長廊,湖水波平如鏡,清澈見底。湖畔的蘆葦翠綠盎然,點綴了澄明的湖面,與遠處的山巒相映成趣。

站在和煦的陽光下,遠眺寧靜而輕柔的湖面,仿佛世界只有我一人,不太相信自己已經來到聖經常常提到的加利利湖。

佇立良久,靜心欣賞眼前幽美怡人的山水畫,想像耶穌傳道的情景。坐在湖畔凝望湖水一層一層的波光,腦袋放空,這個月來的疲憊一點一點地隨著時間溜走。

放空

逃犯條例一日不撤回,香港人還是不能放心。這段日子情緒有點不由自主受新聞牽引,手機總是看著反送中的最新情況。或許,我需要找一片“加利利湖”來放鬆一下,讓腦袋的垃圾清理一下,再繼續上路。
