Sermons and Reflections

Luke 4:21-30

Jesus starts well in this visit to his native synagogue. A good Jewish man, Luke tells us he attends the synagogue regularly, and on this occasion, he was invited to read by the local leaders. He chooses a passage from the scroll of Isaiah, and claims that “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

I wonder at this point if the congregation understood what Jesus was saying, as it seems a rather boastful statement. Yet they “all spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips”.

Luke 4:16-30

The story which Luke tells, of Jesus returning to his home town and reading from a scroll in the synagogue, is a story which is found also in the gospels according to Matthew and Mark. In all three gospels, Jesus’ return home ends badly; he is rejected by his own people.

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.
