"Have you ever had a leather bag or shoes, and they smell so good when you first get them? And maybe it’s nice and clean and tight, but over time it starts to stretch and wear out, and those awesome shoes you had now look quite worn.

"Well that’s what Jesus seems to be talking about when he says not to put old wine in new wineskins... Here’s how I see it. Wineskins are our spiritual practices -- and wine is the abundant life and connection to Jesus he is offering. But if we try to put new connection into old practices... it doesn't work so well." 

So how do we know what to do when it's time to change our wineskins? We're in a new series of talks on the stories that Jesus told so listen below or read Liz's notes to learn more!
