Thinking Space

I would like to set the scene for the story in Genesis. In Genesis 12 Abraham followed the call of God to leave his father’s household and go to the country that God will show him. God made his promise to Abraham:
“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.[a] 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
Abraham was 75 years old and he left with his wife Sarah, his nephew Lot and all the possessions they had accumulated and all the people they had acquired.
This scene takes place 25 years later. This is part of an unfolding journey for Abraham (Abram), where he lived with the promise and his faith gradually increased during his many years of struggle.

What are Mortals?

Written by

What are human beings, that you are mindful of them? To this important and all pervasive question various answers are given:
“Humans are part of the same family as monkeys, that learned to walk upright and discovered the use of intelligent speech.” Say the scientists, but is that all that humans are?
“Humans are units in the complex called society, cogs in the wheel of the state, pawns in the struggle of class warfare.” So say the communists, but is that all that humans are?
“Humans are masters of the universe. What we can accomplish is without limit and everything is put on the earth for our use as we desire.” Such is fairly common thought, and when we reflect on the wonders of human accomplishment its little wonder that so many think this way.

Pentecost

Written by

Melissa Sevier tells about her experience when she receives the occasional newsletters from the first seminary she attended. Almost invariably, it contains stories of ministers who have birthed large churches out of nothing in just a few years, or who have turned dying congregations into mega churches. These are spectacular “wow” narratives, and she assume they are designed to make the graduates feel proud of the institution that educated them, and make them want to give their support. And there is nothing wrong with that. Melissa says, she is always impressed.

But today we have the Pentecost story and it is even more astounding. It contains elements that are stunning, incredible, ecstatic. “When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability… Those who welcomed [Peter’s] message were baptized, and that day about three thousand persons were added to their number.” 

Wow. 3,000 new members as the result of one sermon. Woohoo. Talk about impressive. An amazingly dramatic beginning to the story of the church. But I’m intrigued more by what happened after all the drama subsided.

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.
