Silence Is Not Always Golden - Part 2

Romans 13:8-10

Have you ever heard of the rule that says once spring has sprung, you ought to start spring cleaning? Mostly it is unspoken, perhaps even traditional. For me, as soon as there are a couple of warm days after the cold of winter, I begin to notice the dust on the fly screens or streaks of dirt on the windows. I am sure there are many husbands who dread the list of jobs that begin to increase in urgency because of this law that says: “ Spring has sprung – let’s get on with it!” On the other hand, it might be the other way round in your family and it is the man of the house begins to feel the force of the law and not the woman like it is in ours!


This is a fairly frivolous example of law. There are many laws, however, that govern our behaviour and for the sake of social cohesionthey are vital.

When Silence is Not Golden

If I were to ask you what one of the top 10 moral and cultural issues of the last 100 years might be, I wonder what you would say?
Would you agree that racial identity rates highly among the top 100? - Think of the horrified reaction of the world when it was learned that Nazi Germans had killed six million people whose only crime was to be a Jew. Remember the dawning of disgust and the galvanising of action when the world realised that the South African apartheid system discriminated against millions of people simply because of the colour of their skin.

On the Way

There are many beloved stories in the gospels, and I think today’s story found only in Luke is one of those- at least it is for me. All the recorded Easter stories are both mysterious and fascinating at the same time and in the story for today,  we catch a vision of a living Christ- not on a mountain top, not in an upper room nor any other special place where we might have expected such a revelation to take place. 

Lke 24:13-35

The Raising of Lazarus    

This morning we are given a feast of texts to reflect on. Besides Psalm 130 and a passage from chapter 8 of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome, we have Ezekiel’s dry bones and the raising of Lazarus. Both the Hebrew Bible story and the gospel narrative are full of symbolism and both speak to us today. I am going to reflect on the story from the gospel. It is very long and we haven’t heard it read for that reason. So my reflection will be a retelling of the story as found in the 11th chapter of John’s gospel.

Reflections on Psalm 32

Recently there was an Australian movie called “The Dressmaker” based on a novel by the same name.  Set in a tiny outback Australian town, it told of a young woman who comes back to her home as a successful dressmaker. The story was about her discovering the truth of her past and then going on to take revenge on all who had wronged her as a child. The various characters in the town are twisted and poisoned by the past so it is a very unhappy place to live. What struck me was the total lack of forgiveness in the characters. The whole story seemed to speak into today’s world where shame and guilt are rarely spoken of and where taking revenge is seen as sign of strength.

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.
