Resurrection and Resistance

It is Sunday – the stone has been rolled away, the tomb is empty, and the Christ is risen.  But the joy of the resurrection is not possible without the violence and death of the crucifixion.  To reach today, we must travel through Friday. We need to see the resurrection through the lens of the crucifixion.

As Christians, we have been taught to see the crucifixion as a unique event, but tragically, it was not. The Roman Empire used crucifixion as a political weapon, to send a message to those still living: do not resist, or this will be the result. The crosses at Calvary loomed over the landscape as symbols of torture, of power, of fear.

First Sunday in Lent

Let’s start our reflection today with the message from our Old Testament reading.  Here we have God promising never again to destroy life on this planet via a world-wide deluge.

Whose House

Are there any wine buffs in the congregation? (Thought there might be...) One of my favourite wines is unfortunately no longer made. It was the Stanton and Killeen Special Old Liquor Muscat and drinking it was like biting into alcoholic raisins. It tasted of summer and richness and abundance.

Every wine has terroir, which is a French word that describes the characteristic taste and flavour imparted to a food or drink by the environment in which it is produced. Every wine is produced by a house, and every house has a signature which is influenced by its terroir.  Stanton and Killeen is from Rutherglen, and the full flavour and depth of Rutherglen’s fortified wines comes about in part because of a combination of the same heat degree days as the Clare Valley in South Australia, and the same number of sunshine hours as Queensland’s Gold Coast. The grapes for the fortified wines are grown on a band of loam which skates around the lower slopes of the region’s hills. (This band of loam is very different to the Black Dog fine sandy loam which is found around the Rutherglen wineries which are nearer to the Murray River. )

How to Wait

Psalm 78:1-7 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
I don’t know about you folks, but waiting is a skill that I find incredibly difficult to cultivate. All of the bible readings for this week have something to say about being patient and waiting. (And in talking about waiting, I have chosen not to focus on the gospel reading about wise and foolish waiting, because otherwise I will talk for way too long! But I encourage you to explore that for yourselves.

Time, Opportunity & Change

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.

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, fellowship and ministry.

We come together for authentic and Christ-centred worship. While we worship in a variety of styles, we share a common focus on faithfully listening for God’s Word and sharing His kindness and compassion with others. We express our love for God and others through a range of ministries, and connections with our community.
