Time to grow up

The “Green” season of the church (the Sundays after Pentecost) is a time for growing and a time for deepening our faith. In the Southern Hemisphere this season comes with winter, rather than spring as it does in the Northern hemisphere and so we have an opportunity to embrace the inner growth that the stillness and silence of winter heralds for all of creation.

What is your name?" He said, "Legion"

Who is this naked man, “a man of the city”, who lived in the tombs?
The gospel deliberately gives him a name, “Legion”, and that name suggests that there are many like this man.
So where are all those who clothe themselves with nothing; dressed only in the pretence of ‘looking good but going nowhere’?
Where are all those who live their lives in the tombs of shopping malls seeking only the treasures of acquisition with nothing to give? And where are all those who live isolated from the community, unable to share and experience the love that comes from sharing our abundant diversity?
Maybe they are all locked away on an island somewhere with strict border security so that they will never be found.

"The ‘Feast of Corpus Christi’ gives us an opportunity to look at the Eucharist, the liturgy of Holy Communion; what it means, why we do what we do Sunday by Sunday and in particular what changes we have introduced here at St Paul’s and why we made such changes." Second Sunday of Pentecost 29 May 2016 sermon Peter Humphris

Do you know we use our Community Hall, kitchen and other facilities for our celebrations and weekly and monthlyactivities, and that many other groups in our community use it as well?

Our commitment to community is given a ‘real’ expression in practical terms through continuing to maintain a precinct that welcomes all, especially those service groups that could not otherwise operate.

Living God – voice of Life and sound of silence
our soul thirsts for the water of life
and our faith calls us into righteousness and wholeness.
In Christ our freedom is revealed
for all are one in Christ.
Together we seek to make real the unity of Love
and live as one Body, the Body of Christ.
Amen

Why come to church?

There are many and varied reasons that bring us here Sunday by Sunday: our personal journey and our innate desire for ‘community’ being just two.
We also enter into a ‘conversation’ that takes us beyond the everyday, a dialogue with and between ourselves and our calling into full humanity. And we come to encounter the Divine as we consume the sacraments, a process that mirrors our desire to be consumed by love’s Divine fire.
