Sermons and Reflections

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.

If I were to ask you what one of the top 10 moral and cultural issues of the last 100 years might be, I wonder what you would say?
Would you agree that racial identity rates highly among the top 100? - Think of the horrified reaction of the world when it was learned that Nazi Germans had killed six million people whose only crime was to be a Jew. Remember the dawning of disgust and the galvanising of action when the world realised that the South African apartheid system discriminated against millions of people simply because of the colour of their skin.

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.
