Aug 12- On Being Mortal Aug 19- Prolongation of Life Aug 26- Hospice vs Euthanasia
In the sermons, Rev. Dr. Dale W. Patterson Senior Pastor at Hackberry Creek Church, presented questions to a panel of UTSW practitioners, who are confronted with folks that face the challenges of aging parents and end of life care on a daily basis. The prolongation of life and the entire medical and care industry focuses on keeping people alive. What other questions and values do we need to consider rather than simply staying alive? Because there is a great misunderstanding about hospice we will consider how it brings a very different and underutilized expertise. Too often we act only in crisis and we hurt the ones we seek to love and care for. Further, how is hospice not to be confused with euthanasia?

Jesus Among Secular Gods As belief in the secular gods of atheism, hedonism, relativism, and humanism continues to grow, it’s more important than ever for believers to be able to defend and share the claims of Christ. Not only has the Christian worldview been devalued and dismissed by modern culture, but its believers are also openly ridiculed as irrelevant. This six-session Bible study challenges the popular and trending philosophies of the day, skillfully pointing out the fallacies in their claims and presenting compelling evidence for absolute truth as found in Jesus and revealed in Scripture.
