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?
During the Season of Easter 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.
Join us at 6:00pm for both Good Friday and Easter Sunday gatherings in our New Wineskins Virtual Pub powered by Zoom
This Holy Week, our community will celebrate the sacredness of all things by entering into sacred moments with ordinary objects and ideas.
Studying holy images has become a lost discipline in many faith communities, but it has deep roots in almost every tradition. Using sections of her Underground Railroad quilt as guides, Barbara Rogerson will help us see how visual arts can bring forth deep spiritual truths, and how sharing those in the context of community can enhance our collective theology of justice for the oppressed.
A theology of ecological justice is more than just “creation care.” How we interact with the planet and the cosmos says everything about how we interact with the divine presence.
How we hear, interpret, and tell sacred stories helps us both live into and out of the narratives that shape us. This week Drew guides us on a community journey through story and gives us the opportunity to express how we experience the divine through the tales that arise within us.
Writing or journaling from a specific prompt is a way for communities to experience collective consciousness through a diversity of creative expression.
What does Lent look like when you move the focus away from mortality and toward resurrection?
Join us this week as we plan our Lenten season together!
