Sunday Worship Theme: "Mandate to Protect"

Earth Day Observance during Easter Season Sermon Series: "Unoffendable"

This sermon series is based in part on the best selling book of the same name. It’s a radical, provocative idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth. It is the number one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says, Christians have not been taught out of it. As it turns out, giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do. Order a copy of Unoffendable and read along with Pastor Brice to discover something of immeasurable value—a concrete, practical way to live life.

Matthew Groves, a second year MDIV student at Vanderbilt Divinity School will be delivering an Earth Day sermon focused on the lectionary text of the Good Shepherd. We will examine several ways to be Good Shepherds like Christ in the modern day, both to Creation and to those people most affected by our destruction of Creation and climate change. We will also look at several practical steps congregations can take to be good stewards of Creation, potentially including a brief blessing of the church's new recycling bins.

Sacred Scripture: John 10:11-18

Overview: The people of the secret service vow to protect the president at all costs. Similarly, Jesus vows to protect his sheep, even to the point of death. Jesus, the Good Shepherd, is our own secret service. The Good News is that Jesus has the power to protect us from eternal death through his resurrection. 
 
Human Need: We all need protection in times of vulnerability. The earth also is vulnerable and needs protection.
 
Community Challenge: What is our mandate to protect the environment?

Sacred Scripture: John 15:9-17  

Overview: Jesus tells his disciples, love one another. The love that comes from God, through Jesus, to the disciples and to the world, is a ripple effect that gains momentum and power as it moves. The love we receive today, and the love we give one another, is a gentle wave of peace from God.
 
Human Need: The need to love and to be loved as a person who has dignity and worth.
 
Community Challenge: Knowing and reflecting on the depth, the intimacy and the honor of being loved by Jesus and being called to love one another.

Order a copy of Unoffendable and read along with Pastor Brice to discover something of immeasurable value—a concrete, practical way to live life.

Sacred Scripture: John 17:6-19 

Overview: A classic Christian teaching about our life in the world is to be “in it, not of it.” This statement, which comes from Jesus’ prayer for his disciples in John 17, is a prominent question for Christian communities in the midst of cultural change- how much are we in it yet not of it? As part of the Christian community, we have the confidence to be in the world yet the assurance that we are protected by the power of God’s name.
 
Human Need: We all search for something to believe in and to belong to—with many of us trying to find these communities in religious fanaticism and consumerism.
 
Community Challenge: Jesus calls his disciples, both then and now, to be “hagiazo,” which is the Greek word for set apart for sacred use, or made holy. In other words, we are protected even as we’re dedicated to the task of being God’s community in the world.

Rev. Michaela Moore, HTCC's Women’s Group Facilitator will bring the “spirited” message this Sunday...calling all of Jesus disciples to comprehend the spiritual things we see, but don’t understand. You won’t want to miss Rev. Moore in the pulpit!

Sacred Scripture: Luke 24:36b-48  

Overview: After the resurrection, Jesus appears to the disciples and has a bite to eat, just like one of them. He addresses their shock by telling them that by seeing him they have become witnesses to the reality of the risen Christ. Just like the disciples, belief in the risen Christ makes us all eyewitnesses. 
 
Human Need: To comprehend spiritual things we see but don’t understand.
 
Community Challenge: To move from being a skeptic to an eyewitness of the risen Christ.

Overview: Thomas wanted “the smoking gun,” or the definitive empirical evidence that the one standing before him was the victim of the crime, the crucified and resurrected Jesus. Rather than criticizing Thomas, Jesus gives him what he desires.
 
Human Need: In a world built on the Scientific Method we all want proof, like Thomas. 
 
Community Challenge: To share Thomas’ experience as one who receives the gift of faith—not something we decide so much as something with which we are blessed
