We're having a picnic!
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.
How do we objectify God? Join the conversation this Sunday! Also, Pride in the Park & Our Reconciling Ministries poll!
We are very excited to have Helen Ryde (they/them), organizer with the Reconciling Ministries Network, as our guest for this week‘s gathering!
Introducing Wineskins Workshops...deeper discussion for spiritual exiles.
If we take a step back and look at the fantasy stories that make up our era, we see a mosaic of the Gospel.
So what if we're missing the point of Palm Sunday. What if it's less celebration and more subversion? Not so much a shindig as a scandal?
What if vulnerability is actually at the heart of what it means to be fully human? What if, without vulnerability, we are missing out on something that is at the core of our true essence?
As it happens, stories have immense power. And what we do with the power of our own stories in many ways defines who it is that we actually are.
