路思義教堂(Luce Chapel)是東海大學最知名的景點、中部地區最具代表性的建築物。遊客來東海大學,必定會來這裡「朝聖」。

由於東海大學是一所基督教大學,路思義教堂就是學校的精神堡壘,守護校園的莘莘學子,到現在路思義教堂還會舉行主日禮拜。

教堂座落在校園中央的一大片草地上,很適合帶小孩來這裡野餐、奔跑、玩球。

Luce Chapel is the most famous attraction of Tunghai University. It is one of the few structures in Taiwan which appears in worldwide architectural magazines.

Since Tunghai University is a Christian university, Luce Chapel stands as a spiritual fortress of the school and guards the students at all times.

The church is situated on a large grass in the middle of the campus, very suitable for bringing children here to have picnics, run, and play balls.

Until today, the church still holds Sunday services in this chapel. You can come here on Sunday morning at 9:00 or 11:00 for worship (translation with audio available at 11:00).

先看學校的地圖,路思義教堂在哪裡?編號 6 號的位置。

從收費停車場開始走的話要走大約 2 公里,感覺好像有點遠,實際走起來並不會,因為校園環境優美。

The map shows that Luce Chapel is No. 6.

If you start from the parking lot, you will have to walk about 2 kilometers. It may seem a bit far, but it actually is not, because the campus is beautiful.

 

經過乳品小棧、匠培咖啡館、東海小棧,再往前走下去。

Walking pass Tunghai dairy, the coffee shop, then go forward.

 

校園的樹林茂密,好像走在森林裡。

Walking in the campus is like walking in the woods.

 

大約走了十分鐘,看到這間花園餐廳表示到了,對面就是大草皮跟路思義教堂。

After walking for about 20 minutes, you will see this garden restaurant. Luce Chapel is on the opposite side.

路思義教堂在陽光照耀下閃閃發亮。

路思義教堂建於 1963 年,至今已有 50 多年,是美國時代雜誌及生活雜誌的創辦人路思義(Mr. Henry R. Luce)先生為了宣揚福音並紀念其父親,捐款而興建,由美籍華裔建築大師貝聿銘設計,是他的代表作之一。

This chapel was built in 1963 and has been in existence for more than 50 years.

Luce chapel was founded by Henry R. Luce, the founder of America's Time, Life, and Fortune magazines, to commemorate his father Rev Luce.

The famous American Chinese architect I. M. Pei designed the chapel. It is one of his well-known pieces.

教堂位於學校的中心,既不屬於教學區,也不屬於學生活動區,而是在一片大草皮上,以表彰其崇高性。

在建校初期,樹木不像現在這般茂密,因此從校內任何一處都可以看得到教堂頂端的十字架。

The chapel is located in the center of the school. Neither in the teaching area nor the student activity area, but on a large turf.

In the early days, the trees were not as dense as they are now. The cross at the top of the chapel could be seen from anywhere in the school.

教堂的建築形式非常特別,是用四個曲面所組成,四面各自分離,中間以玻璃邊窗連接,從外觀看,就像一雙虔誠祈禱的手,優美而神聖。

上小下大的形狀給人穩定的感覺,而且教堂建築結構沒有使用任何一根傳統式的柱子,卻足以對抗風力與地震。歷經九二一大地震,仍屹立不搖。

The architectural features of the chapel are worth seeing.

It is composed of four curved surfaces, separated from each other. A glass side window connects both sides. The chapel looks like a pair of praying hands, beautiful and sacred. The upper small and lower large shape gives a sense of stability.

The chapel did not use any traditional columns but is strong enough to resist wind and earthquakes. After the 921 Earthquake, it still stands firm.

屋脊部份分開,以玻璃作成天窗,呈現「一線天」的意涵。

我們到的時候,教堂沒有對外開放。

The church was not open to the public when we arrived.

教堂的內部神聖又莊嚴,從外面往裡看,目光會不自覺地被格子牽引向上,延伸至天窗,就像仰望上帝一樣。

即使沒有信仰的人,來到這裡也會深深的被吸引住。

The interior of the church is sacred and solemn. When you look inside, your eyes will be drawn up by the grid unconsciously, extending to the skylight, just like looking up to God.

教堂前有群畢業生正在拍畢業照,漂浮照有創意但很不好拍。他們前前後後試了很多次,大約拍了20、30 分鐘才搞定。

每當陣風吹起時,他們的腳架快要被吹倒,其中一位畢業生總能及時救援。他還很厲害,大家發出「啊~」的聲音時,他就火速跑去扶正,腳架沒有一次倒下來過。

Some graduates are taking graduation photos in front of the chapel.

Floating photos are creative but hard to take. The students tried back and forth many times. It took about 20-30 minutes to get it done.

Each time a gust of wind blew, their tripod was about to fall, one of the graduates would come to rescue in time. When everyone made a sound of "ah~" he ran to straighten up quickly, and the tripod never fell once.

距離路思義教堂最近的公廁在哪裡?要跨過馬路,到文理大道那邊,公關室旁的公廁比較新。

The nearest public toilet is next to the Public Relations Room.
