This week at New Wineskins, we’ll engage with a video from The Work of the People featuring Sr. Simone Campbell of the Nuns on the Bus movement about how our hyper-individualistic society has blinded us to reality and how a sense of holy mischief can awaken us to who and what God is and how participating in acts & movements of justice bring us closer to the Beloved Community.
This week at New Wineskins we’ll have a frank Independence Day discussion about decolonizing Christianity and the part we as individuals and communities have to play in it.

This week at New Wineskins we‘re very excited to welcome Wheeling, WV resident, activist, and organizer Amy Jo Hutchinson as our guest speaker!

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.
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.
