New Wine, New Wineskins to Host Fall Retreat at Cannon Beach

The Institute for Cultural Engagement: New Wine, New Wineskins is proud to hold our annual retreat at Cannon Beach Conference Center this year! Our theme is Jesus’ Beatitudes: Living the Upside-Down Kingdom, which relates to a book on the topic that New Wine’s Director, Dr. Paul Louis Metzger, recently published (available for purchase here).

In addition to exploring this theme, the event is a time to find out what New Wine, New Wineskins is all about, whetehr you’re a newcomer or a returning partner. It’s a time to gather in fellowship, relax, and engage in great discussions in a beautiful setting: the Oregon coast.

Since we don’t always get to connect on a regular basis, New Wine’s retreat is an ideal time to join together and catch up. We want to hear about how you are doing, listen to things you’re concerned about, and learn how we can pray for you. We also would love to update you about what is going on at New Wine as well. More than ever, our world needs relational bridges built through Jesus Christ, which is what The Institute for the Theology of Culture is all about. We hope you can join us as we strategize, pray, and joyfully face this next year refreshed and renewed!

We are excited to announce that we are again partnering with Multnomah University and Multnomah University’s Seminary Student Life team. These partnerships will allow for more exciting opportunities to talk about theology, culture, and how best to build bridges with one another — and the culture at large — in a time that seems so rife with conflict and open hostility.
