Celebrating Hope

Written by

“The Sovereign Lord has filled me with his Spirit and sent me to bring good news to the poor, to heal the broken hearted and to announce release to the captives. He has sent me to bring comfort to those who mourn, to replace grief and sorrow with joy and gladness. They will rebuild the cities that have long been in ruins.” 

Bold words from Isaiah; a spirited exuberant vision, which finds its echo in the song of Mary: “My soul praises the Lord. God has pulled down the mighty and raised up the lowly. God has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away with empty hands. My soul praises the Lord.”

A Voice Cries Out

Written by

Prior to chapter 40 the news spoken in God’s name is a difficult word of judgment. The people have rebelled against God. The people have lived at the expense of their neighbors, putting their own desires above the needs of others. These chapters, mostly from the 8th century, point forward to a time when Jerusalem would be destroyed. In 587 BCE Jerusalem fell to Babylon, and a portion of Jerusalem’s population went into exile.
From chapter 40 forward, this word of judgment is in the past. Jerusalem was destroyed, and a number of its citizens did go into exile. Now, circa 540 BCE, on the other side of this experience, a new word comes to the people of Judah -- a word of comfort and hope for a new future.

The young couple budgeted very carefully. They needed to watch their spending otherwise when the bills came there wasn’t enough money in the bank to cover the necessities. But they were pretty good at it, could laugh it off when they had to have a few too many meals with baked beans as the main ingredient, didn’t think twice, about replenishing their worn wardrobe from the cheap tables at the op shop and were quite happy getting their evening’s entertainment from the free to air shows on their old telly, as long as they could enjoy it together.

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.
