Sermons and Reflections

As sand through an hour glass so are the days of our lives.
These words have become not only the start of a well-known TV soap but the iconic image of the ups and downs of family life.

There’s good news and there’s bad news;
the good news is that long, long ago once upon a time there was actually no television.
The bad news is that Days of our lives started well before the advent of TV.

Diversion or Rest?

Written by

Imagine the following scene. You are in the town square. A group of boys and girls are playing a game, where they are enacting weddings and funerals. It is not a competition. It is more like a role play. The have a flute or a whistle and they start up a joyful wedding tune. The boys start a circle dance and they invite the girls to join in. They have seen their fathers do this at Jewish weddings. The music changes to funeral lament. The girls begin wailing and lamenting. They have seen their mothers do this at funerals. The boys join in. Then the music changes again. The children enjoy the roles switch and they exaggerate the responses.

One of my favourite Australian folk songs starts with the line, “Oh, the springtime it brings on the shearing”. It’s one of many that shearers sing to celebrate their contribution to the economy. Their job is to cut the national wool clip, which last year totalled 325,000 tonnes. That’s over 1.6 million bales, each weighing an average 200 kilograms.

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.
