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.
But what if we could be better listeners? Could it effect more than just our day-to-day conversations or civic discourse, but actually transform our neighborhoods and communities?
Everyday sights, smells, and sounds that trigger something deep within us that foster a a rich sense of thankfulness in our very core.
This week at New Wineskins we'll talk about the issue of God and gender, discuss how patriarchy affects our perceptions of God, and consider the history and importance of the Divine Feminine.
