New Wine, Old Wine Skins

We are off to New Wine tomorrow. Its a great time usually, and we return refreshed and inspired. And even if it can be hard to readjust from conference back to Church, many of the values and teaching can be informing to our Parish situation.

However I do wonder whether that refreshing we receive at events like New Wine is actually a little Like that saying of Jesus’. When we go to these conferences I wonder whether we take our fractured and damaged lives and allow a new veneer to replace the peeling surface. Do we in-fact end up putting the New Wine in to the old wine skins of our lives?
