Can we have peace without first having renewal? And can renewal come without repentance?
Join us this Sunday as we welcome Dr. Tom Oord to talk about open and relational theology in the context of community formation to kick off our Advent:Reimagined season!
Rather than looking forward simply to the baby in the manger, we want to think about how we ourselves embody the cosmic Christ that breaks into humanity with the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.
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.
