Diversion or Rest?

Written by

Imagine the following scene. You are in the town square. A group of boys and girls are playing a game, where they are enacting weddings and funerals. It is not a competition. It is more like a role play. The have a flute or a whistle and they start up a joyful wedding tune. The boys start a circle dance and they invite the girls to join in. They have seen their fathers do this at Jewish weddings. The music changes to funeral lament. The girls begin wailing and lamenting. They have seen their mothers do this at funerals. The boys join in. Then the music changes again. The children enjoy the roles switch and they exaggerate the responses.

One of my favourite Australian folk songs starts with the line, “Oh, the springtime it brings on the shearing”. It’s one of many that shearers sing to celebrate their contribution to the economy. Their job is to cut the national wool clip, which last year totalled 325,000 tonnes. That’s over 1.6 million bales, each weighing an average 200 kilograms.

The Bread of Life

Written by

How do prefer to eat bread? Sliced multi-grain, lightly toasted and spread with marmalade? French baguette, thickly cut, with raspberry jam? Crusty loaf fresh from the oven, with melting butter and vegemite?
Yes, bread comes in many shapes, sizes, styles and flavours. Many of us eat it every day in some form or another. No wonder it’s called the ‘staff of life’ — a staple food the world over. And little wonder that much of the world’s agricultural land is given over to growing the grain to make the flour comprising about 60% of the mass of any loaf of bread.

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.
