Oct. 22 Gathering: Refusing to be Enemies

Loving Enemies Series Week 3

During the first two weeks of our Loving Enemies series, we’ve had a lot of conversation about how we define who may and may not be our “enemies.” What’s the criteria? Are enemies merely people with whom we disagree, or is there some level of intent to harm embedded in the term?

But what if there’s another angle to consider…in what ways might we be enemies to others? And what can we do about it?

This Sunday at New Wineskins we’ll view a powerful and timely video from The Work of the People featuring Palestinian Christian Amal Nassar, whose family owns and operates Tent of Nations Farm, an outpost of peace situated in the midst of the occupied West Bank near Bethlehem where building a bridge between people and the land is an act of resistance in the face of cultural genocide.

Please join us this Sunday, Oct. 22, in the New Wineskins Virtual Theology Pub powered by Zoom for the third session of our Loving Enemies series as we seek to unpack how refusing to be an enemy disarms the powers and principalities that seek to divide and conquer us all.
