Here is an introduction to this course containing ten videos. In this 10-video conversations, you will be challenged to think about a biblical theology of shame and love. What does it mean to experience shame? How do we demonstrate our love for another person? Why is it essential to think about our life as a narrative? What is the role of sanctification in addressing shame? You are invited to join the conversation as we discuss these questions and more like them.

Think of an experience, and tell the story from your childhood that has helped make you the person that you are. The story can be a positive experience, a funny experience, a struggle, or a painful memory. It is entirely up to you based upon how safe you feel in this current group.
Describe the words people hear in their lives that shape their sense of who they are.
How much of your self-image is a result of the words you have heard spoken into your life through the years? If they were positive words, how did they help you? If they were negative, how did they shape you?
Describe your identity of Christ. Use as many constructs as you can to achieve a clear picture of who Jesus Christ is.
