Wisdom on Sex

Written by

Song of Songs 2:8-13

One of the challenges of preaching on this passage is the way that it can ostracize people in the auditorium. Here I am, a cis-gendered heterosexual woman in a long-term marriage relationship talking about a book in the bible that is celebrating physicality and sexuality. And this could be throwing up all sorts of issues for all sorts of people.

Mark 7: 24-37

I wonder what you make of the scene in Mark’s Gospel today? Does it sit comfortably with you? I suspect not so let’s take a moment to look at it. There are two main characters in the story - Jesus and an unnamed woman. She is identified only by her culture, a Syrophoenician. Let’s begin with her.

Ephesians 6:10-20

This week’s bible reading is an interesting example of God’s sense of humour, don’t you think? Those of you who know me more than a little know that I am a feminist, a pacifist, and an active practitioner of non-violent resistance as explained in the work of theologians such as Reverend Martin Luther-King Jnr, Mahatma Gandhi and Jarrod McKenna. And yet, here I am today preaching on a passage from Ephesians which on the surface at least is all about militarism.

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.
