1. Jesus

1.1. "The sculpture challenges us. And in that challenge you are shaken, and you realize it was good to be shaken." Timothy Schmalz

1.2. Holy Spirit

1.2.1. "Now, with all the people who came to be baptised, Jesus too was baptised. Then, as he was praying, the heaven opened and the Holy Spirit came down upon him and a voice was heard from heaven, 'You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.'" Luke 3:21-22

1.2.2. '"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth"' Acts 1:8

1.2.3. Acts 2:1-4 The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost "2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them."

1.3. Scripture: Matthew 25: 31 - 46 The Sheep and the Goats "31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ 44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”"


1.5. Jesus' Mission in the World Today

1.5.1. 1. Bring good news to the poor.

1.5.2. 2. Proclaim release to the captives

1.5.3. 3. Recovery of sight to the blind

1.5.4. 4. Let the oppressed go free

1.5.5. 5. Proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

1.6. Jesus' mission has a debatable answer as the whether or not it would be possible for someone to complete it in the world today. The mission of 'recovery of sight to the blind' would be close to impossible for the average person (unless they possessed some kind of unworldly power). Though, the four other particular missions could be easier to accomplish for an average person. "Bring good news to the poor" could be accomplished by simply walking across the street and talking to someone without a home. 'Proclaim release to the captives' and 'Let the oppressed go free" might be more difficult considering one cannot simply walk to a jail and set free all that have been imprisoned, though this mission could also be referring to the captives as in slaves or people battling mental and/or physical health issues by supporting and/or healing them.

2. People

2.1. Homeless Jesus By Timothy Schmalz - Challenges the beliefs of the church and makes the spectator change their opinions on Jesus making it hard to relate to him. The sculpture questions assumptions about Jesus and his personality and traits, this gives the impression that Jesus goes through the same struggles and is essentially just like everyone else. Sculptures by TPS – Religious statues and sculptures by Timothy P. Schmalz

2.2. Emerging Moral Problems - terrorism, domestic/family violence, Indigenous land protection, human trafficking, humanitarian rights (basic food, clean water, appropriate shelter), rape/sexual assault, school/church/civilian shootings, pollution, animal cruelty, extinction, climate change, missing persons, illegal drug use, homelessness, inflation of prices for necessary goods and services, suicide, nuclear weapons,

3. Church

3.1. YOU

3.1.1. What is Church? The different aspects of a church don't make up the church. The people do. Without the people, the church feels empty. The churches purpose is to educate people the message of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and assist them on their faith-filled journey through their spiritual lives. If the people wasn't an aspect in church then church wouldn't be complete.
