Today we tackle Mark Chapter 2:18-22 where Jesus is asked why his disciples don’t fast as the Pharisees do and even as the disciples of John the baptist do?  His response seems slightly disconnected from the question and we explore that but the parable Jesus shares in responses have great meaning on their own to make it a gold mine to explore.  New cloth patches on old cloth outfits and new wine in old wine skins.  What happens when those stuck in rigidity meet those who are adapting and growing.
