A Voice Cries Out

Written by

Prior to chapter 40 the news spoken in God’s name is a difficult word of judgment. The people have rebelled against God. The people have lived at the expense of their neighbors, putting their own desires above the needs of others. These chapters, mostly from the 8th century, point forward to a time when Jerusalem would be destroyed. In 587 BCE Jerusalem fell to Babylon, and a portion of Jerusalem’s population went into exile.
From chapter 40 forward, this word of judgment is in the past. Jerusalem was destroyed, and a number of its citizens did go into exile. Now, circa 540 BCE, on the other side of this experience, a new word comes to the people of Judah -- a word of comfort and hope for a new future.

The young couple budgeted very carefully. They needed to watch their spending otherwise when the bills came there wasn’t enough money in the bank to cover the necessities. But they were pretty good at it, could laugh it off when they had to have a few too many meals with baked beans as the main ingredient, didn’t think twice, about replenishing their worn wardrobe from the cheap tables at the op shop and were quite happy getting their evening’s entertainment from the free to air shows on their old telly, as long as they could enjoy it together.

Welcoming strangers

Written by

In Australia at this point in our history, we see many of those who would be leaders within the political sphere claim the tenants of the Christian faith as the basis for their personal stance on certain issues and push that as necessary for the national identity and social policy. Many of these people also profess to be active in their own Christian faith.

However, there are many of us who wonder if they have perhaps missed this bit of the bible that was read to us from Matthew 25, if it has somehow just disappeared from their reflective diets. We hear the words they so vehemently espouse as truth and right and see nothing more than a race toward the bottom of the barrel in terms of attitudes and policies in relation to people seeking refuge and asylum in this country.

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.
