May 9 Gathering: Resisting Empire

Reimagining Resurrection: An Easter Season for Spiritual Exiles Week 4

How do you respond to the idea that America operates as an Empire?

That Empire is antithetical to the way of Jesus?

How do spiritual practices focused on joy, faith, and gratitude help us resist empire?

This week at New Wineskins we’ll continue our “Reimagining Resurrection” series interacting with a video featuring author and pastor Brian Zahnd as he challenges Christian acceptance of empire, specifically through acceptance of economic and security systems and structures that promote oppression and dehumanization.

Join us this Sunday, May 9, in our New Wineskins Virtual Theology Pub for a conversation about how faith communities can critique what Zahnd calls the systemic sins of greed and violence and work toward more equitable and just societal norms.

6:00pm: Happy Half-Hour (informal meet & greet time)
6:30pm: Presentation & conversation begins
