This week at New Wineskins we’ll view, listen to, and discuss various forms of protest art—music, poetry, and visual art forms—from the perspective of how they impact us both individually and as a faith community.
Whether you’re a long-time participant in New Wineskins, a recent attendee, or just someone who’s curious about our community, we invite you to be part of these important discussions that will help us explore our identity and begin to map out our future.
Biblical storytelling is a unique way to encounter and humanize the scriptures. This week, Rev. Drew Willard, a semi-retired pastor in the United Church of Christ, will walk us through a fun and fascinating look into the story of Jonah.
Join us Mondays in June for some awesome guest speakers!
The question is, will we break toward the common good, or will we dig back into our entrenched hyper-individualism?
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.
Our discussion will center around how Jesus uses a traditional rabbinic teaching style to help his followers deconstruct their inherited faith systems.
What does it really mean to be growing spiritually? What are the barriers we encounter? And why do so many of us seem to get stuck along the way?
