Thinking Space

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.

Jesus' call to mission

Written by

For today we’ll call this “Sunday before Lent”. The traditional practice of the season of Lent is to give something up. This is definitely counter-intuitive to the way of the world where the dominant life imperative is to acquire, collect, advance, and definitely not to “give up” or “let go”.

Advertising tells us that WE are the most important projects in the world. As we all know, it’s all about ME! The only damage that you can do to your psyche is to deny yourself what you really, really want. Self-care and self‑satisfaction seem to be our primary motivations. We worship the self. We have no greater project than ourselves.

Being perfect

Written by

Here is an old tale: Once upon a time, in a land much like ours, there were some weary travellers who came to a village with nothing but a cooking pot. They found a place to camp near some water, filled up their pot, and put it over a fire. Then they took a large stone and put it in the pot as it simmered.

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.
