Whatever passion leads us on the radical path toward transformation—and ultimately to sacrifice—is the unquenchable fire of the Divine Spirit within us...and all we must do to awaken it is to turn towards it and let it free.
What do we need to be freed from? How can we be agents of freedom for others?
Join us this Sunday, May 9, for a conversation about how faith communities can critique the systemic sins of greed and violence and work toward more equitable and just societal norms.
This Sunday we continue our Easter Season for Spiritual Exiles, “Reimagining Resurrection,” by reclaiming gratitude as a way of experiencing a faith based in trusting the abundance of divine love as the core of reality.
This week at New Wineskins, we’ll continue our Easter Season series on Reimagining Resurrection by listening to Guite talk about Thomas and why his encounter with the resurrected Jesus is foundational to our own faith experiences (and why we’d all probably like to have a glass of whiskey with Thomas!)
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.
