To remind us of the person who we are
As temporary persons
Who leave our imprint
By way of our love for one another
We are excited to partner with our friends at Justice & Jubilee to provide an innovative and intimate way to observe the season of Lent this year.
For this Ash Wednesday, we invite you to view the video “Fruitful Darkness” from The Work of the People. Then, join the conversation in our Wineskins Workshops Facebook Group with your reactions and reflections on what the video says to you (link expires Thursday 2/23/23).
Join us for Lent with Justice & Jubilee!
Every week during Lent, Justice and Jubilee will host their regular YouTube live premier at 5:30pm (Eastern Time) and invite participants to join us in our New Wineskins Virtual Theology Pub powered by Zoom for Happy Half-Hour from 6:00-6:30pmET for a time of conversation and community.
We’ll then hold our regular 6:30pmET discussion focused on how we might look at the J&J topic through the lens of deconstruction, seeking to find deeper, perhaps unexpected meanings that inform our collective justice & liberation work.
