How can we know...?

Written by

Mark 6:30-34, 53-56

How can we know what God is like? This is one of those questions which all thinking Christians struggle with from time to time. Some think about it in their childhood, perhaps in Sunday school, come up with their idea and then, unfortunately never get around to thinking about it again. Some, perhaps as enquiring teenagers, more aware of the world around them and themselves as emotional and social beings, seek and find a deeper awareness and update their ideas. ln adulthood, some consider the more difficult aspects of their concept of God, acknowledge that the world is not all black and white, that there are areas of grey, where they cannot be so certain that their way of thinking is the only way of seeing things, and so might add some extra layers to their idea.

What's your map like?

Written by

Mark 6:1-13

Do you like maps? One of the joys of reading fantasy is that fantasy worlds need maps, so that the reader can track the physical journey of the characters, as well as travel beside them in whatever quest they are completing.

I did a quick Internet search, and did you know that people have actually sat down and ranked the best fantasy maps of all time? (And some of them I actually agree with!) So, if you are the kind of person who geeks out over little line drawings of imaginary nation states, then this is the sermon for you!

2 Corinthians 5:16–21 & Ephesians 2:1–10

‘Renew’ and ‘renewal’ are words we commonly use when we’re talking about our legal and contractual obligations. “I mustn’t forget to renew my car registration next week,” we might say; or “Now I’m over 70 my annual driver’s licence renewal depends on a successful medical examination by my GP.”

Our Scripture readings this morning were also about renewal, but not of car insurance or drivers’ licences. The reading from 2 Corinthians 5 was about spiritual renewal, the renewal of the soul that happens when a person chooses to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ. The person who enters an active relationship with Jesus is renewed — starts again as a different kind of person.

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.
