Confession in community offers more than an admission of guilt. Community offers healing. Community offers change. Community offers grace and compassion.
To be able to share the parts of me that I feel most ashamed of, the parts of me that ache and make me want to hang my head and not go in public (I’m extremely self-critical), in a group of people who already know me well, already love me and accept the whole of what I have to offer the group, this – this is Jesus.
You can find my story of confession over at Alise Write, today. I’m a huge fan of her and her blog, and hope you will be, too!
