Sermons and Reflections

One of the things I love about living in Canberra, especially in the south is the Brindabellas.  Most days I drive along Sulwood Drive and as you turn the bend, there they are in front of you.  They always look different and they never fail to lift my spirits.

Recently there was an Australian movie called “The Dressmaker” based on a novel by the same name.  Set in a tiny outback Australian town, it told of a young woman who comes back to her home as a successful dressmaker. The story was about her discovering the truth of her past and then going on to take revenge on all who had wronged her as a child. The various characters in the town are twisted and poisoned by the past so it is a very unhappy place to live. What struck me was the total lack of forgiveness in the characters. The whole story seemed to speak into today’s world where shame and guilt are rarely spoken of and where taking revenge is seen as sign of strength.

Jesus' call to mission

Written by

For today we’ll call this “Sunday before Lent”. The traditional practice of the season of Lent is to give something up. This is definitely counter-intuitive to the way of the world where the dominant life imperative is to acquire, collect, advance, and definitely not to “give up” or “let go”.

Advertising tells us that WE are the most important projects in the world. As we all know, it’s all about ME! The only damage that you can do to your psyche is to deny yourself what you really, really want. Self-care and self‑satisfaction seem to be our primary motivations. We worship the self. We have no greater project than ourselves.

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.
