Readings and Hymns

Welcome to St John's

The people of St John’s welcome you to join them in the worship of God through the traditional liturgy of the Anglican Church. At St. John's you will receive a warm welcome and openness that we hope reflects the love that God shows to each and every person through His Son, Jesus Christ. Our worship consists of Word and Sacrament. We preach from the Word of God, and the Sacrament is offered from the Lord's Table, where all who seek Him are welcome.

There are many aspects to a churches life, and this is so at St. John's. We encourage you to look around our site, as we are sure you will find different activities that you will enjoy joining in with. We want to be inclusive as the people of God, and so encourage you to bring your talents and needs to St John's.

St. John's is an historic church, with a rich history and tradition, but it is not a museum! It is a lively and vibrant place, seeking to be a light in the middle of the city. So, if you are passing through, or living in our lovely City of Albany, welcome to St. John's. We pray you find this site useful, and perhaps we'll see you some time. May God bless your journey.

Sunday 18th March 2018  

Do You Know Jesus?


Somehow the constancy of people wanting to see Jesus sparks in him an awareness that his time is now short. Some Greeks ask Philip if they can see Jesus, and clearly the arrival of Gentiles indicates how well known Jesus now is. So now is the time for the Son of God to do what he came to do. That’s why he says (v.27) “It is for this reason that I have come to this hour.” He indicates that the timing is right, and his purpose is clear. He must be lifted up, and when he is, he will draw all people to himself.


In v.34ff (the part we no longer include in this reading) the crowd respond by saying that their teaching has indicated that the Son of Man would remain forever, so why should he be lifted up? Jesus replies, that they are clearly living in darkness – ignorance. What he infers is that they have not only misread the law, they have made the law so exclusive they’ve no capacity to discern what is right in front of them. The crowd asks: “Who is this Son of Man?” And yet Jesus has performed miracle after miracle, has taught profoundly, and has been active the whole time, and yet they still don’t get him. And now they’ve even heard the voice of God as if it were thunder, and they are still perplexed.


Can we see what is right in front of us? Are your eyes turned to Jesus that you might see him? This story raises for us a question of where our priorities lie. Are we enamoured with law and legalism, or are we seeking forgiveness and love, healing and wholeness? What is our image of God, of Jesus? If we create false images, moralistic images, self images, we will not see who the Son of Man is, even though he is right in our midst, because we will have a twisted or distorted view determined by our ignorance. If Jesus is love divine, then where is that in our very midst? The other facet of this is simply, with the death and resurrection of Jesus, we are co-partners in being love to the world, so where we are, there Jesus is supposed to be by the way we live!


Blessings, Paul
