Spirit for All

Written by

It is Pentecost. We are our celebrating the origins of the church by the coming of God’s spirit. There’s no better time to celebrate the diversity of the Kingdom of God than on the Day of Pentecost. Separately, our differences are too diverse to list, but put together, our individual uniqueness creates a beautiful kaleidoscope we call the Body of Christ.

Pentecost is a reminder that God’s Holy Spirit is given freely to all people with no respect for race, culture, socioeconomic standing, gender or any other distinguishing mark used by people to differentiate one person from another. In God we are one.

And it leaves us with some questions:

What does the Holy Spirit really mean to us? In our experience? In what we see in others and what happens in our own lives?

Acts 1:6-11

You have to feel for the disciples. Jesus gives his followers a farewell message, and is suddenly lifted up out of their sight. There they stand, jaws agape, bodies frozen, stunned into silence and probably thinking: what on earth just happened!

And two men appeared before them - to bring them back to earth, so to speak:

Don’t keep looking up in the sky, just get to doing what he told you to do.

These final words of the Lord before being taken up, was to give the church a mission. That mission is to witness, in word and deed, what has happened among them in Jesus Christ. He has ascended, and commissioned His followers to be His witnesses, proclaiming the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Love one another

Written by

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. John 15:9

I imagine that most of us have had someone close to us die. My mother died thirty-five years ago, but I can still remember quite clearly the last time we were together. I'm sure that my experience is a common experience. Those last few moments with a loved one remain in the memory.

Well the passage we heard this morning is part of John's account of some of Jesus' last words to his disciples. It is part of what is known as the farewell discourse and the words and actions of Jesus would probably have become indelibly etched in the memories of those present.

Jesus and his disciples are gathered together. He has just washed their feet, showing them a model of leadership that is based not on authority but on service. Then he addresses his disciples in very endearing terms. "Little children", he says, "I give you a new commandment, that you love one another."

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.
