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.

Does God reign

Matthew 5: 13-20     Isaiah 58: 1-9a

Does God reign?   That seems to be a strange question to ask when the today’s text from Matthew is about light and salt.

A time for preparing

Advent 1   Matthew 24:36-44  

Our first advent candle is burning and I for one have begun to get a sense that Christmas must be on the way. What about you? That of course means planning begins soon if it hasn’t already,  for parties, family gatherings and possibly the purchasing of gifts, maybe planning for holidays or trips away. On the other hand, the lighting of the first advent candle may lead to thoughts of a loved one who is sadly missed.  For many children, but sadly not all, the long wait for Santa’s visit begins.

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.
