10-30-2016 – “Watch the Road”

What motivates a thirty-three year old monk to start a revolution? It wasn’t a Restoration; a movement backward to reinstate what once was. A Reformation moves the Church forward to realize what could be. For a Church that’s always in Reformation, that means we watch the road… So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?” ~ John 8:31-33 ________________________________ About the Preacher Josh Hatcher is a devoted husband and father, hopeless wonder-junkie, and the Pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church – an open and caring, distinctly Lutheran, deeply sacramental and sometimes eclectic ministry in the heart of Downtown Memphis.

October 23 – A Clean Slate

October 23 - A Clean Slate

Forgiveness is more than just the simple undoing of our wrongs. It’s an immeasurable cleansing of the residue that lingers in our memory; the assurance given every time we assemble in the Name of Jesus. This message explores the healing power of Confession, and the clean slate of Christ’s forgiveness. “He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” ~ Luke 18:9-14 ________________________________ About the Preacher Douglas Morrison has served as Deacon at Trinity Lutheran Church since 2012, where he is active in preaching, teaching, pastoral care, and liturgy.
