In this time of tension between continued social distancing and economic & community restarting, many of us may feel the strain for which the psalms of lament give voice.
The question is, will we break toward the common good, or will we dig back into our entrenched hyper-individualism?
We’ll wrap up our Wineskins Workshops deep dive into the Sermon on the Mount this week with a look into what are perhaps some of the most widely misunderstood sayings of Jesus in Chapter 7 of the Gospel of Matthew.
As our time of social isolation during a global pandemic wears on, could it be that we are experiencing a collective dark night of the soul? And if so, what can we learn from it?
We continue our Wineskins Workshops deep dive into the Sermon on the Mount this week with a look into Matthew 6:19-34 and what Jesus has to say about the things to which we assign value...especially systems and structures that tend to devalue the inherent dignity of the many for the benefit of the few.
In this strange time of social distancing and protecting ourselves from an invisible enemy with very visible consequences, maybe this Easter can teach us something we've been missing.
Join us this Friday, April 10, at 6:00pm for our first-ever New Wineskins Good Friday observance, "A Death to Awaken: A Virtual Good Friday Liturgy for Spiritual Exiles."
We resume our regular 1st & 3rd Monday schedule for Wineskins Workshops on Monday, April 6, with a look into how Jesus moves his audience from deconstruction toward reconstruction in Matthew 6.
Our discussion will center around how Jesus uses a traditional rabbinic teaching style to help his followers deconstruct their inherited faith systems.
