New wine in new wineskins:

Dr. Carlos Cardoza-Orlandi

Lewinsville welcomes Dr. Carlos Cardoza-Orlandi, the Frederick E. Roach Professor of World Christianity in Baylor University’s department of religion. An interdisciplinary scholar and historian in the fields of world Christianity and mission studies, Dr. Cardoza researches interpretations of the Christian movement around the world on both institutional and popular levels, the socio-cultural interplay between Christians and other faiths and more. 

“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins;
otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled,
and the skins will be destroyed. 
But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.”    — Luke 5:37-38
