More than enough - Matthew 14:13-21

Facebook has many advantages, apart from being told when your friends are having coffee or their hair done. It is a way to keep connected with many interesting things in our world. Every day I get a post from the Michael Leunig Appreciation Group, and last week, one cartoon was about table restaurant legs – “The old ways … the true ways”.

The Way, the Truth, the Life

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father except through me.

Jesus’ response to Thomas’s assertion that they (the disciples) could not possibly know the way to where Jesus was going has left us with one of the most memorable verses in the New Testament.

This section of John’s gospel has comforted mourners, inspired songs and billboards, and raised expectations of success through prayer.

Jesus' call to mission

For today we’ll call this “Sunday before Lent”. The traditional practice of the season of Lent is to give something up. This is definitely counter-intuitive to the way of the world where the dominant life imperative is to acquire, collect, advance, and definitely not to “give up” or “let go”.

Advertising tells us that WE are the most important projects in the world. As we all know, it’s all about ME! The only damage that you can do to your psyche is to deny yourself what you really, really want. Self-care and self‑satisfaction seem to be our primary motivations. We worship the self. We have no greater project than ourselves.

Simplicity

Structural and personal freedom

Francis and Clare of Assisi were not so much prophets by what they said as in the radical, system-critiquing way that they lived their lives. They found both their inner and outer freedom by structurally living on the edge of the inside of church and society. Too often people seek either inner freedom or mere outer freedom, but seldom—in my opinion—do people seek and find both. Francis and Clare did.

Social Justice Sunday

Sunday 25 September

Somebody remarked to me this week that they had seen the first signs of Spring. And the first sign of Spring these days is apparently Christmas decoration at the Hyperdome! So we get plenty of advance notice of Christmas, don’t we? 

Not so much advance notice for the day that is recognised in many churches throughout Australia on this day. Today is Social Justice Sunday.

It is helpful to get the exact definition of social justice so I brought my copy of the Macquarie Dictionary.  

Quote for today

...But you know Him, for He lives with you, and will be in you. John14:17

About Our Church

Our faith community began in 1975 as a small ecumenical gathering of people who settled in the new Canberra township of Tuggeranong. We have grown with the Tuggeranong Community, and our parish centre is the hub for our work, as a place of worship, of gathering and ministry.

We aim to help people have life to the full. We welcome people into a our Christian community where they can connect with God, with one another and with opportunities to make a difference in our changing world.
