Sermons and Reflections

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.

Living Bread

Written by

John 6: 51-58

If you have been paying attention to the readings and sermons over the past few weeks, you will have identified a common theme – bread.

Three weeks ago we had the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand.

Two weeks ago, the reading from John 6 spoke about Jesus as the true bread from heaven.

And last week, progressing further into John 6, we read about Jesus as the bread of life.

This week, our reading, again in John 6, speaks of Jesus as the living bread.

It has been quite a sandwich!

Ephesians 4:25 - 5:2 and John 6: 35, 41-51

One of the really different things about John’s gospel is that there is no account of Jesus sharing bread and wine with his followers at the last supper, but instead there is this amazing reflection in chapter 6 following directly on from the story of the feeding of the 5000 in the desert, about Jesus as the Bread of Life, and about sharing in the body and blood of Christ.

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.
