Come and See

 Today’s readings are about how God approaches us, our relationship with God and how we respond.

Samuel

Our first example comes from the first book of Samuel. This is a story how God called young Samuel and how he responded.

Celebrating Hope

“The Sovereign Lord has filled me with his Spirit and sent me to bring good news to the poor, to heal the broken hearted and to announce release to the captives. He has sent me to bring comfort to those who mourn, to replace grief and sorrow with joy and gladness. They will rebuild the cities that have long been in ruins.” 

Bold words from Isaiah; a spirited exuberant vision, which finds its echo in the song of Mary: “My soul praises the Lord. God has pulled down the mighty and raised up the lowly. God has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away with empty hands. My soul praises the Lord.”

A Voice Cries Out

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.

Better than a fair go

Imagine you are a day labourer in this parable. You are struggling financially. You do not have a steady job. You might have a family to support. It is important to get work because this pays for the basic necessities in your life like your food and rent. You probably do not have a plot so you can grow your own food.
You are early and go to the marketplace to get work for the day. The owner of the vineyard is offering a denarius, let us say $200 to work in his vineyard. You feel lucky because you have work and it will mean that you will be able to go home to your family tonight and you can support them.

Diversion or Rest?

Imagine the following scene. You are in the town square. A group of boys and girls are playing a game, where they are enacting weddings and funerals. It is not a competition. It is more like a role play. The have a flute or a whistle and they start up a joyful wedding tune. The boys start a circle dance and they invite the girls to join in. They have seen their fathers do this at Jewish weddings. The music changes to funeral lament. The girls begin wailing and lamenting. They have seen their mothers do this at funerals. The boys join in. Then the music changes again. The children enjoy the roles switch and they exaggerate the responses.

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.
