Dec. 4 Gathering: RENEW

Advent:Reimagined Week 2

Can we have peace without first having renewal?

And can renewal come without repentance?

This week at New Wineskins we’ll celebrate the second week of Advent:Reimagined by talking about how living repentantly opens the door to renewal of relationships and allows us to conspire freely from all our various perspectives to embody the Beloved Community.

Our video this week will feature anti-apartheid activist and Anglican priest René August with a challenging message about repentance by both oppressors and the oppressed, and how our collective redemption is always wrapped in reconciliation.

We’ll also have a brief reflection and candle-lighting liturgy led by Steve and Carol Peck based on this week’s gospel text from the Revised Common Lectionary, Matt. 3:1-12. Please feel free to have a candle or Advent wreath handy to participate in your own space.

Please join us this Sunday, Dec. 4, in the New Wineskins Virtual Theology Pub powered by Zoom for what promises to be a deeply meaningful conversation about repentance and renewal.

6:00pm EDT: Happy Half-Hour (informal meet & greet time)
6:30pm EDT: Presentation & conversation begin
