“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.
We are very excited to have Helen Ryde (they/them), organizer with the Reconciling Ministries Network, as our guest for this week‘s gathering!
If what we call “God” is a trinity of three “persons,” and if we believe we are bearers of the imago dei (image of God), are we also trinitarian beings?
This week at New Wineskins we‘re very excited to welcome Wheeling, WV resident, activist, and organizer Amy Jo Hutchinson as our guest speaker! Amy Jo is working with Faithful Democracy to organize and mobilize faith communities in West Virginia and beyond to support the For The People Act, the sweeping voter rights and election reform legislation currently before Congress.
Whatever passion leads us on the radical path toward transformation—and ultimately to sacrifice—is the unquenchable fire of the Divine Spirit within us…and all we must do to awaken it is to turn towards it and let it free.
Join us this Sunday, May 9, for a conversation about how faith communities can critique the systemic sins of greed and violence and work toward more equitable and just societal norms.
This Sunday we continue our Easter Season for Spiritual Exiles, “Reimagining Resurrection,” by reclaiming gratitude as a way of experiencing a faith based in trusting the abundance of divine love as the core of reality.
This week at New Wineskins, we’ll continue our Easter Season series on Reimagining Resurrection by listening to Guite talk about Thomas and why his encounter with the resurrected Jesus is foundational to our own faith experiences (and why we’d all probably like to have a glass of whiskey with Thomas!)
During the Season of Easter our community will reflect on what it looks like to begin to emerge from the extended Lent of Pandemic that has been marked not just by Coronavirus, but also by our confrontation with injustice and oppression in its many forms: racism, white supremacy, homophobia, classism, and more.
Join us at 6:00pm for both Good Friday and Easter Sunday gatherings in our New Wineskins Virtual Pub powered by Zoom
