Sermons and Reflections

It is Sunday – the stone has been rolled away, the tomb is empty, and the Christ is risen.  But the joy of the resurrection is not possible without the violence and death of the crucifixion.  To reach today, we must travel through Friday. We need to see the resurrection through the lens of the crucifixion.

As Christians, we have been taught to see the crucifixion as a unique event, but tragically, it was not. The Roman Empire used crucifixion as a political weapon, to send a message to those still living: do not resist, or this will be the result. The crosses at Calvary loomed over the landscape as symbols of torture, of power, of fear.

Palm Sunday

Written by

Today is Palm Sunday, a day that is part of a bigger story about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and the confrontation between Rome and Christianity.  

This story can be found in all of the four gospels, in Matthew 21:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, John 12:12-19 and from our reading today, Mark 11:1-11, this story is one of the key events of the Ministry of Jesus. The event of Palm Sunday marks the beginning of what is often referred to as the “Passion Week”, “Holy Week” or Easter Week. This event took place on Sunday. By the following Sunday Jesus will have been crucified, buried and risen.

Love on a cross

Written by

John 12: 20-33

Today’s reading from the gospel of John is a collection of sayings that John has put together , and placed in the final days of Jesus’ public ministry,  in order to stress the significance of Jesus' death.    

The passage begins with Phillip telling Jesus that some Greeks wanted to see him, and, of course, the Greeks would have been gentiles. But instead of saying,’ bring them in’, or ‘tell them to go away’, Jesus says said "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified”.   That sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Jesus is to be exalted - to be seated at the right hand of God. That seems like an event to look forward to.

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.
