May 22 Gathering: Resurrection from “The Tyranny of the Now”

trash on body of water

What makes it hard for you to be hopeful?

What circumstances seem to make it difficult to believe that a better tomorrow is possible?

In a time when our news feeds and public discourse seems filled with hatred, violence, and victimization, how can we not only imagine a better future, but become agents of that future?

Are we doomed to hopelessness, or is resurrection possible?

This week at New Wineskins, we’ll wrap up our Eastertide series on resurrection and atonement with a conversation about what it takes to move beyond historic moments of conflict and strife into full flourishing for all human beings. Our video this week will feature Dr. Robyn Henderson Espinoza talking about “The Tyranny of the Now” and how oppressive systems and structures are destroying marginalized communities through greed and exploitation…and where hope can still be found.
