We are very excited to announce that this fall we are going to be working through Brené Brown’s book, “Daring Greatly.”

First, if you don’t know Brené Brown, she’s a social worker, researcher, PhD and explorer of all things human, especially topics, or rather feelings, like courage, vulnerability and shame. Her TEDtalk is one of the top viewed videos with 25 million views. I encourage you to check it out: Brené Brown TedTalk

This book, one of her three New York Times bestsellers, explains how vulnerability is at the core of all feelings – not just bad ones like fear, anxiety and shame, but also good ones like love, joy, and passion. She says that we could all use a little more vulnerability in our lives, because it’s neither bad nor good. It just is, and embracing it means being courageous. Though we might not be able to fully eradicate shame from our lives, we can build up shame resilience and develop healthy ways to identify, process, and move forward when shame strikes. 

Alongside Daring Greatly, Pastor Chris and Abby will be connecting the material to Biblical concepts and teaching. We will explore God’s model of vulnerability and how healthy vulnerability can begin to transform our narratives of shame.

Online sign ups will be available close to the start date.
