The True Vine

What image do you see in your mind when I say the word ‘vine’? A scarlet-runner bean clambering upwards along a tall garden stake, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’-style? Ivy clinging to some ancient wall? A passion fruit adding colour to a garden as it climbs a veranda-post? Or
a grape vine extending its tendrils along a trellis?

The Good Shepherd and his sheep

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

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.

The light of the world

The contrast between light and darkness has been an idea exercising many minds across the millennia. Consider, for instance, just these three examples: 
1)    “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when adults are afraid of the light.” (Plato, Greek philosopher, 428–348 BC).
2)    “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” (Martin Luther King Jr., American civil rights activist, 1929–1968).
3)    “We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.” (J.K. Rowling, author of the ‘Harry Potter’ novels, born 1965).

I am the way, the truth, and the life

How do you self-describe yourself? If I gave you a sheet of paper with ten numbered points each beginning with two words, “I am…”, but otherwise left blank for you to fill out; and then I asked you to write a brief description against each numbered “I am”, what would you write? If we had another half-hour, we could conduct such an activity as a preliminary pre-sermon exercise; but we don’t and won’t. Instead, to save time, let me read you my own numbered list of “I ams”.

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.
