Sermons and Reflections

Hebrews 1:1-4; 2:5-12, Mark 10:2-16

In today’s Gospel reading we seem to have two unrelated stories. The reading starts with the Pharisees trying to trap Jesus with a Catch 22 question about divorce laws.

This results in Jesus making some very positive statements about the permanence of marriage and some consequent negative statements about divorcing your spouse and remarrying. These are very intimidating words for those who have been divorced and are remarried.

John 17:1–23

One of the most unpleasant words in the English language is ‘sanctimonious’. It’s a word we use to describe someone who makes a show of being morally superior to other people. Expressions meaning much the same are ‘self-righteous’, ‘holier-than-thou’, ‘goody-goody’ and ‘Pharisaical’ — all equally unpleasant, and terms we’d not like to be described by.

Sanctimonious’ is one of various English words derived from the Latin word ‘sanctus’, meaning ‘holy’, which also gives us the word ‘saint’ — a very holy person. Other words from the same source are ‘sanctify’ and ‘sanctification’, which are words we’ll explore further.

Marketting Jesus

Written by

Mark 8:27-38

Some years back, the ABC reported that a group in Sydney was attempting to block a Christian marketing campaign on the basis that the advertising code of conduct prohibited advertisers making “false claims.”
I was intrigued about this from a couple of perspectives. First, the notion of Christianity being a false claim, but also the notion of putting Jesus into the mix of the advertising world. How do we, should we, put the claims of Jesus Christ into our world.

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.
