“And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.’” (Luke 5:37-39, NIV)
New Wineskins is a conversation in community in the progressive Christian spiritual stream. It’s people coming together to share a meal, a drink, and ideas.
We come from all kinds of backgrounds, all types of stories. But we share a common interest in the way of Jesus. A way marked by radical generosity, radical inclusiveness, radical justice, and radical love.
Gatherings happen the 2nd & 4th Mondays of each month and focus on a particular story, song, poem, or other creative expression of our human desire to connect in some way with the divine in a facilitated conversation. Attendees are encouraged to share their thoughts and reflections in a free and open dialogue.
Wineskins Workshops are held on 1st & 3rd Mondays and offer a deeper dive into topics related to individual and community spirituality. Workshops are designed to allow more intimate and focused discussions over the course of several meetings.
New Wineskins is a No Judgement Zone. We believe that’s critical to having conversations where people learn from one another and grow together in community. We may not always agree, but we always seek to understand.
If you’re not part of a church community, we are happy to create a space where you can explore and experience the life of Jesus. If you are, we hope you’ll experience something here that contributes in a positive way to the church you attend. We hope to be a supplement, not a substitute.
We welcome all people of all backgrounds, orientations and experiences. Bring your hardest questions and deepest doubts. Feel free to invite your friends.
