Changing My Religion: Cage-Stage Convertitis

On this special episode, we discuss the process, perils, and blessings of converting to another tradition within Christianity. Bart and Daniel share some of their own personal experience of being raised in a different Christian tradition, converting to another one in their late teens and early twenties, and moving past their anxious, obnoxious “cage-stage.” We discuss the wider dynamics of public discourse, the importance of reading primary sources, the danger of partisan historical narratives, and the great benefit of active discipleship and ministry in the local congregation.
