Advent II: The Exile of Shame
Exile is any time what should be, seems to be losing the battle to what is, and this is experienced in a variety of ways. Even when we are not under the power of a foreign oppressor, as Jesus’ people were, every human heart knows, in some way, the exile that comes from shame. In this message, we explore the reality that in Jesus there is no condemnation and there is freedom from shame. As part of an abundant life in God’s love, we explore how we can ground ourselves in the reality that all who trust in Christ are never put to shame.
