Rev. Ng Wai Man has served as Chaplain of Chung Chi College for a total of thirteen and a half years, which is so far the longest tenure since the establishment of the college.
“Leisure Beyond On Shan” is composed of three sections: Eulogies, Prayers for Contemplation, and Sermons. The Sermons section is further categorized into ‘Ancestors’ on amity and enmity, ‘Psalm’ on grievances chants, and ‘Gospel’ on Jesus’s footsteps.
The three eulogies commemorate the youngest and oldest member of the church respectively: Lau Shan was born severely handicapped and was abandoned at birth. She was only ten when she died; Professor Hu Xiuying was an eminent figure at home and abroad with very high status. She rested in peace at the age of 102; “Those years” is written in memory of my beloved mother.
Rev. Ng is knowledgeable and full of inspiration; his sermons are thereby sonorous, lucid, and touching.

His prayers are often beautifully written and respond to current affairs, which easily arouse interest and concerns among his audience. Notwithstanding such a hectic life, he knows how to enjoy “leisure”, for he possesses a carefree personality, and an attitude of “being in and out of the world.”
