I have no idea if this lady, Brene Brown, is a Christian and she certainly doesn't quote the Bible. Nonetheless, what she says, rings true for me. "For connection to occur, we have to allow ourselves to be seen, really seen... Vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, of creativity, of belonging, of love... It's the starting place for being wholehearted."
My sense is that it has huge implications for how (and why) we "check in" (SASHET) with ourselves, with our friends and with the Lord. And, for how we do church. See what you think.
