This week at New Wineskins we’ll look at exactly what we mean when we say we’ve either encountered or are expecting to encounter the Christ
Whether we’ve left the institutional church altogether or we remain there for our own reasons, most of us feel a profound disconnect between much of how the modern church behaves and what we believe to be the way of Jesus.
What if contradictions, doubt, and uncertainty have a purpose? What if the real key to knowing comes in the unknowing?
“Liturgy” is one of those church-y words that often causes us to roll our eyes and retreat into whatever other thoughts might be occupying our minds when we hear it. But the word “liturgy” itself simply means “the work of the people.” So whatever we do, when we do it together in the context of community, is our liturgy.
This Christmas Eve, we invite you to join us in a special visual liturgy and community love feast in the progressive Wesleyan tradition as we gather virtually to reflect on the incarnation and the holy revelation of the divine within the material.
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.
What does life as a faith community look like in the digital world?
Join us this Friday, April 10, at 6:00pm for our first-ever New Wineskins Good Friday observance, “A Death to Awaken: A Virtual Good Friday Liturgy for Spiritual Exiles.”
