Return to me, O Israel

Written by

Jeremiah 4:1

Last Sunday we reached a wonderful temperature of 22 degrees at our home. A friend in SYD said it was 30 degrees where he lives. Here in CBR, the beautiful spring weather decided that it would withdraw on Monday and snow was falling in the Brindabella’s, and in some CBR suburbs I believe.

Seasons in CBR are not the only matters that have a life of their own! Two weeks back I was in SYD at a conference. One of the keynote speakers was Hayley Jones (not her real name) who is a political journalist and commentator.

Hayley said she likes to bring contemporary issues of faith into the public square for discussion. She doesn’t go to this space to fight the issues, rather she speaks to ‘shine a light, and to be a light’.

Romans 12:9-21 Matthew 16: 21-28

All of the readings set for today talk in some way about time, opportunity and change. There is a right time, an opportune time, a time to begin something new. It might be a completely new thing, or it might be a new stage on a journey. In Matthew, Jesus is preparing his disciples for Jerusalem – preparing them both for the physical trip, and for the changes that will follow on from there. The Old Testament readings included the story of Moses and the burning bush, and the salvation story of the Jewish people. In Romans, Paul calls us to a time when we can change ourselves to be people of love.

Out of Bondage

Written by

When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, ‘I drew him out of the water’. Exodus 2:10.

On this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not stand against it”. Matthew 16:13-16.

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2.

All our readings this morning are significant in that they introduce three mighty stories; each of which draws the people of God out of one or another form of bondage.

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.
