Shedding Your Old Skin
In this episode, the Freevangelics talk about how as we grow into new knowledge, wisdom, and maturity in the search for Truth we outgrow the old skin of evangelical belief and have to shed it, much like the gumbo limbo tree of Florida does as it grows. Throughout our growth we may shed multiple skins as our wisdom increases, but in doing so we open ourselves to new vulnerability.

The FREEVANGELIC Podcast - Episode 8 - Misquoting Jesus
Is today's Bible what was written almost 2,000 years ago? In the 1,500 years between the time of Jesus and the invention of the printing press, the gospels and letters of the New Testament were repeatedly hand-copied by scribes, at first amateurs and later professionals. We examine this process and the changes that were made, both accidental and intentional, through the book "Misquoting Jesus" by Bart Ehrman. (Also, announcements and our preparations for The Wild Goose Festival 2019!)
