i throughly enjoyed this series and gave me much to think about as one who grew up in the 80s & 90s in an evangelical church and went on to be a pastor. It gave me context to things some folks hold as the way church should be but is fairly recent developments.

I think maybe my favorite part of this particular episode was when Dr. Du Mez said that her editor made her include the ending about what can be undone. Her candor made me smile. And I appreciate her desire to honestly confront issues and consider how we've gotten to where we are.
