Welcome to St Andrew’s Uniting Church Bendigo-Axedale

A message from our minister Rev Di Esbensen …

We find ourselves in a time of challenging and inspiring opportunities to
connect and engage with our community, a time of redefining and reexploring
what it means to be living the way of Jesus in our time and
place, what it means to be visible Christians in our city and town.

I had several very interesting conversations recently. One was about
taking things back, narrowing things down and being more exclusive – and
I realised the driving force behind this was fear. The second conversation
was about an inspiring forum at Ulumbarra and the positive social media
response that it created about the depth of faith lived visibly and with
integrity – and I saw that the driving force behind this was openness, hope
and engagement.

Our choice as individuals and as communities of faith – is to be caught up
in the fear being peddled in so much of our politics, media and sadly some
parts of the Christian Church, or to be liberated by the Gospel, by others’
living expressions of courageous faith, by the hope that as we are faithful,
compassionate, open and inclusive, we might discover that God and
humanity are capable of a more embracing and diverse expression of
diversity and good than our imaginations have held.

It is time to reflect on the things, structures, habits and stuff that limits our
creative and meaningful expression of being engaged and life-giving
Christians in our time and place. There are teaching and insights of Jesus,
wonders and health in prayer, support and encouragement in being part of
community, that we need to set free.

As the season of watching the rain from somewhere warm transforms into
the season of new life and hope, let us find this new life and hope within
ourselves, our churches and our world.
