Friday, April 2: Good Friday (6:00-6:30pm)
“There’s no end to grief…that’s how I know there is no end to love.”—Bono (from the song California [There is No End to Love] by U2)
Join us for a visual liturgy for Good Friday featuring content from The Work of the People as we explore together a theology of crucifixion that views the cross as transformational rather than transactional. Featuring clips from a diverse sampling of public theologians including Rachel Held Evans, Walter Bruggeman, N.T. Wright, Brian Zahnd, Stephanie Spellers, Brene Brown, and Nadia Bolz-Weber.
Sunday, April 4: Easter Celebration of Resurrection for Spiritual Exiles (6:00-6:30pm)
“Christianity—as well as Buddhism, other religions, and natural systems—suggests that the pattern of transformation, the pattern that connects, the life that Reality offers us is not death avoided, but death transformed. In other words, the only trustworthy pattern of spiritual transformation is death and resurrection.”—Richard Rohr
Resurrection is the pattern of all reality. The resurrection of Jesus is more than just death defeated. It is the archetype for life transformed. It is, as Richard Rohr puts it, an integral element of The Divine Flow. Join us for an Easter Celebration of Resurrection as we gather as a community to celebrate a liturgy of the sacramental universe in the pattern of the ancient tradition of the Love Feast. Bring something to eat and drink (be it bread and wine, cheese and juice, cake and milk…whatever symbolically represents to you the eternal pattern of resurrection) as we participate in this timeless ritual of life.
Join us at 6:00pm for both Good Friday and Easter Sunday gatherings in our New Wineskins Virtual Pub
