Conversation & Community for Spiritual Exiles
Doubters • Seekers • Rejects • Outcasts
Wounded • Wondering • Wandering
Sinners • Saints • Survivors
For many of us following the spiritual tradition of Jesus, the Pandemic year of 2020 into the first part of 2021 has seemed like an extended Lent…a season of confronting our mortality. A season of searching for the way of repentance as a radical reorientation of the way we participate in life and community.
During the Season of Easter, which runs from Resurrection Sunday to Pentecost, our community will reflect on what it looks like to begin to emerge from the extended Lent of Pandemic that has been marked not just by Coronavirus, but also by our confrontation with injustice and oppression in its many forms: racism, white supremacy, homophobia, classism, and more.
New Wineskins is a virtual community meeting online via Zoom every Sunday evening! Come for Happy Half-Hour at 6:00pm to connect informally, then join the conversation beginning at 6:30pm every week.
Check our Events & Updates page for weekly topics, guest speakers, etc.
“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.
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.
