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.
What do we really mean when we say “Christ is king?” What does it mean to grant authority to Jesus? And do those two statements even mean the same thing?
What exactly does the writer of 1 John mean by the audacious claim that “God is love?” And what do we mean when we repeat it today?
Love means a lot of things to a lot of people. But far from being merely an emotional exchange, love is a power, a force, an energy that has the ability to transform lives and to continually recreate itself.
This week at New Wineskins we’ll observe All Saints Day with a time for each of us to recognize the saints whose witness to unconditional love inspire us to keep showing up, keep doing the work, and keep spreading hope.
This week we’ll start bringing our themes of the past few months together with an introduction to Process Theology
Once every 3 months we take a break from our weekly gatherings to provide space for rest and renewal. It’s one of the spiritual practices that are part of the rhythm of our community. We’ll reconvene for our regular Sunday night gatherings on Oct. 23. See you then!
Are followers of Jesus called to impose and enforce order, or are we called to disrupt systems and structures whose predictable patterns result in exploitation and marginalization?
