Sermons and Reflections

Apr 11, 2017

Palm Sunday

Written by

Sara Miles tells a story: A couple of weeks before Easter, I was at the farmers market in our neighbourhood and I ran into some friends, radiantly happy, who were carrying their new baby. We stopped to talk, and the baby’s dad, who isn’t a Christian but has always taken a kindly interest in my church work, said, “I know you must be busy getting ready for Easter, right? Isn’t it soon? So what’s the thing to say — do you tell people “Happy Holy Week?’” 

“Well,” I said. “You could say 'Happy Easter,’ when it’s actually Easter day, or ‘Christ is Risen!’ if you’re hardcore, I guess. But until then it’s kind of confusing: there’s a lot of different stuff going on in Holy Week. You could get whiplash.” 

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.

Woman at the well

Written by

John 4-42

The story of the Samaritan woman has many parallels in our world. There are very many women who see themselves in this woman. She has gone to the well as part of her daily duties, a duty that is related to her survival of her family - water is a necessity – you have to have it. But then she was faced unexpectedly with a deeper thirst – one she barely knew she had.

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.
