Holy Week Journey

Written by

Last Sunday marked the beginning of Holy Week, the most important and sacred time in the Christian calendar. In our compartmentalised western society, we have tended to divide these services off into separate and independent services, each with its own ‘theme’.

In the first centuries of the church, however, the Christian Passover (Pasch) was seen as a unity, telling the full story from beginning to end. This week we begin the journey through Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection, from the triumphal march, the supper table, to the cross, and finally Easter dawn.

Palm Sunday Bible Study Week 6

This week, I invite you to read and reflect on this week’s Lectionary gospel readings, Luke 19:28-40, 11b-32, and Psalm 118.

The story of Jesus’ triumphal march into Jerusalem is a very well-known story, and in the synoptic gospels culminates in Judas’ betrayal and Jesus’ arrest. The psalm has been chosen as it contains the lines about the cornerstone (traditionally understood as a symbol for Jesus) being rejected.

Jesus anointed

Written by

John 12:1-8

This is a dialogue between two slaves at the house of Lazarus, Martha and Mary. Miriam is a strict Jew and has a firm idea of custom and law. Phoebe is of Jewish Hellenistic origin, more liberal in her views and very interested in the message of Jesus. They have been serving dinner to the guests, including Jesus, after Lazarus’ was mysteriously raised from the dead.

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.
