As Brown and Black communities mourn yet another string of police violence toward their children, as our nation continues to witness wave after wave of senseless gun violence, and as the societal trauma of the ongoing pandemic seems like it might never end, joy can become a difficult thing to imagine.
But can our trauma be transformed?
This week at New Wineskins, we’ll view a video from The Work of the People by author and pastor José Humphreys about how our joy can be an act of resistance to empire, colonialism, racism, white supremacy, an apathetic church, and evil, oppression, and injustice. Then we’ll discuss what a “worshipful resistance” looks like for us as a community and for the Church as a whole.
Please join us this Sunday, April 18, as we kick off our Easter season of “Reimagining Resurrection” by Reclaiming Joy.
