This week at New Wineskins, we’ll end our (r)Advent journey with a discussion of how Love extended to those most oppressed and marginalized by our societal systems and structures is the heartbeat of reality and the key not only to their liberation, but our own.
This week at New Wineskins, we’ll continue our celebration of (r)Advent by exploring the theme of Joy, where we find it, and how we can share it through acts of justice and liberation.
If peace is possible, how are we ever supposed to get there? Are we too far gone to really bring about the Beloved Community?
What does hope look like in the context of liberationist communities? For one thing, it means examining our roles in combatting climate change and lifting up its effects on marginalized communities.
This Advent season, we’ll engage with the traditional themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love and explore how they come to life in a justice-oriented community in a post-Christian world
This year for Advent and Christmas, New Wineskins has partnered with RIP Medical Debt to help reduce or eliminate medical debt for folks in the Appalachian region, which includes our home base of West Virginia.
Advent is a story. Not just a story that happened but one that still happens. It’s a story of the divine breaking into humanity. It’s a story of how things are and the possibilities of what things can become.
We love Christmas carols! We love beer! We love caring for our community! It’s a match made in yuletide heaven!
We often talk about Advent as a season of waiting for the light.But what if, while we were waiting, we learned to welcome the darkness?
What if we began to recognize the sacredness in our ordinary routines? To find that behind the garland-covered mantles, the overbaked sugar cookies, the elves on assorted shelves, and the inside family jokes was something deeply holy?
