The fourth candle

This week we light the fourth Advent candle, which symbolises joy in the Advent tradition.

This candle is traditionally pink or rose in colour, and marks a shift from the more solemn tone of the first few Sundays of Advent towards the more joyous themes anticipation and expectancy.

This candle is also seen as symbolising Mary, the mother of Jesus, as she anticipates the birth of her child.

The bear in the neighbourhood

Luke 3: 7-18

We have been talking about how the things we fear the most can save us over the last two weeks. We explored the concept of making friends with the bear, or the thing we fear greatly, to find it offers redemption. There are many things to fear in our world, but terrorism and refugees rank high on the list.

But what about the bear in the neighbourhood? What is it that we fear in our midst? And what can we do about it?

Advent 2

Luke 3:1-6

All of the lectionary readings are, in some way, concerned with redemption. In last week’s sermon, we talked about Luke’s apocalypse, a she bear and a lost baby, a miracle of maternal love, and how redemption could come from the thing we fear the most. This week can be interpreted as expanding this idea, and the readings ask us some important questions.
How do we prepare the way of the Lord so that ‘all flesh will see the salvation of the Lord’?
How do we give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and guide our feet into the way of peace?

Advent 1 - The Bear

Luke 21: 25-36

There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on the earth distress among nations confused by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will faint from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in a cloud’ with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. 

Why this passage in Advent? It is a good question, as it seems somewhat out of step with the hopeful and joyful message that characterises the rest of the season.

Quote for today

...But you know Him, for He lives with you, and will be in you. John14:17

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.
