A sense of wonder

Written by

A number of years ago we bought a lovely black Labrador puppy and named her Rosie. Rosie and I went to puppy school so I could learn how to be a good obedient puppy owner. Although Rosie and I gained first place in the schooling, there was one command which I wasn’t giving Rosie correctly – the command to drop – ie on all fours on the ground. On that command Rosie would always cock her head to one side as if to say, ‘Speak proper doggie English dad!’

Whose House

Written by

Are there any wine buffs in the congregation? (Thought there might be...) One of my favourite wines is unfortunately no longer made. It was the Stanton and Killeen Special Old Liquor Muscat and drinking it was like biting into alcoholic raisins. It tasted of summer and richness and abundance.

Every wine has terroir, which is a French word that describes the characteristic taste and flavour imparted to a food or drink by the environment in which it is produced. Every wine is produced by a house, and every house has a signature which is influenced by its terroir.  Stanton and Killeen is from Rutherglen, and the full flavour and depth of Rutherglen’s fortified wines comes about in part because of a combination of the same heat degree days as the Clare Valley in South Australia, and the same number of sunshine hours as Queensland’s Gold Coast. The grapes for the fortified wines are grown on a band of loam which skates around the lower slopes of the region’s hills. (This band of loam is very different to the Black Dog fine sandy loam which is found around the Rutherglen wineries which are nearer to the Murray River. )

Here we are. Christmas Day 2017.  Almost time to leave behind the mad rush of the season which seems to get madder with each passing year. How you feeling? Do you feel like celebrating?

Perhaps you are sighing in relief because now there is time to relax - at least for a few days! Hopefully you do feel like celebrating and enjoying the day with family and friends even if that means putting on a silly hat and telling equally silly jokes.

However, for some, it must be acknowledged the day may be tinged with loneliness or disappointment. For some there will dread rather than joy because of the fear of violence or perhaps an impending separation or loss of a job.

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.
