Jesse Tree Event

Many in our parish family are unable to come to church due to illness or infirmity. A wonderful way to share the love of Christ during the season of Advent is to make a visit to a parishioner and present them with a Jesse Tree*.

Please consider gathering your family or a group of friends and join us on December 15 at 1:00 p.m. for a brief time of fellowship and carol singing before being sent out to make your visit.

If you have a family member who would like to receive a visit on December 15 or you would like to participate, please contact the Reverend Lissa Smith or call 615-255-7729.

*The Jesse Tree is a small evergreen that represents Jesus’ family tree that rises from Jesse of Bethlehem, the father of King David. It is decorated with symbols portraying Jesus’ ancestors.

Come, hear the story of St. Nicholas, a fourth-century bishop of Myra, in what is now Turkey.

Join us, it's an additional opportunity for children and families to celebrate the traditions of our saints in Advent.

A Day of Prayer
Oct

A Day of Prayer

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. – 1 John 5:14

Christ Church Cathedral will join its fellow parishes in the Diocese of Tennessee in leading A Day of Prayer, as part of a Diocesan-wide Prayer Vigil on October 27. This powerful act of corporate prayer will serve to unite us as a common body of Christians in middle Tennessee as we pray for what is just and right in our community and in the world around us. 

A Day of Prayer will also celebrate the diverse ways we as Christians can choose to “pray for our needs and those of others,” by offering a time to pray silently or aloud, in solitude or in communion with friends, family, and neighbors.

Plans at the Cathedral include:

  • Chapel Prayer - The day will begin at 7:15 a.m. with a reading of Morning Prayer in the Chapel and conclude with Evening Prayer at 4:30 p.m. At every hour throughout the day, a period of quiet prayer in the Chapel will begin, during which time intentions from the congregation and the community will be read.

  • Prayer Wall - A prayer wall will be set up outside the Cathedral on Broadway from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will grow throughout the day with handwritten intentions, flowers, and pictures, representing the silent prayers of those who have visited.

On Sunday, October 7, the Reverend Dr. Andrew Zirschky will preach at the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. Liturgies on the topic "Where Technology and Faith Collide." 

An intergenerational panel discussion during the Dean's Forum at 9:45 a.m. will be moderated by the Reverend Matthew Lewis. Panelists will field questions on a variety of themes relating to faith and technology in order to offer reflections on the subject from their perspectives across different generations. 

The Reverend Dr. Zirschky will continue the discussion over refreshments beginning at 3 p.m. that afternoon. Children, youth, and adults alike are invited to participate in a full day of insightful and challenging conversations about faith in the digital age. 

The discussion will examine how social and mobile media are changing the ways we relate in fundamental ways. What is the call of the Christian community in a digital society and how do we live at the intersection where technology and our faith collide? 

Andrew Zirschky (Ph.D., Princeton Theological Seminary) is Assistant Professor of Practical Theology and Youth Ministry at Memphis Theological Seminary and serves as academic director at the Center for Youth Ministry Training in Brentwood, Tennessee.
