This passage, where Jesus tells his followers to leave and shake the dust of their sandals if they encounter towns unwilling to listen to their message is one that we’ve talked about a few times in podcasts episodes and articles over the years. But there’s still new insight to be found which is why we’re talking about it again!
In this episode, we explore the impulse folks have to stay in churches, communities, and families that don’t affirm and won’t listen to them… where that comes from, can we be helpful if we stay, what happens if we leave, who benefits?
