This year's message is: World keeps changing... We'll need God's power and grace to change to become better
Overall, I think the show is very good, but not as good as previous Yeah Shows. I think Yeah Show 2009 is more like a talk show (棟篤笑) than preaching show. Pastor Lam talks about problems in Hong Kong. He is funny, but those things that he talks about doesn't directly related to God. I think he should talk more about God.
Things that I remember about the show:
If you see a guy and a girl finish eating in a restaurant, and...
- the guy takes the bill, pays without looking, and gives a big tip --> It means the guy is trying to pursue the girl.
- the guy takes the bill and looks before paying --> It means the love relationship between them has started.
- the guy takes the bill and says that it's expensive --> It means their relationship is very steady.
- the guy takes the bill and then give it to the girl for paying --> It means the girl is his wife.
Pastor Lam talks about some writings on a gravestone in England.
(From web, the writings is from an unknown monk in 1100 A.D.)
When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.
This is very meaningful. If you want to change the world, you must first change yourself.
I like the Yeah Show 2009 theme song. It is a very beautiful song.
