Do you enjoy podcasts?
We'd love to recommend "Transforming the Church" (<--Apple Podcast link) by Dr. and Pastor Derwin Gray and his co-host Alexandra Hoover. In this short, 23-minute episode, our co-hosts have an honest and vulnerable conversation on overcoming shame. In addition to an Apple Podcast, this podcast can also be found on Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Soundcloud.
God wants us transformed. Our sin, our shame, and our brokenness does not define us; Jesus' victory does. We believe in a God that redeems, not only to heal us, but to become, as Henry Nouwen describes, "wounded healers" ourselves.
If you struggle with guilt or shame, we pray you experience the love and transformation found in Jesus. Please take a listen, and reach out to us if we can ever pray for you in any way.
We're here for you.

"Nobody escapes being wounded. We are all wounded people,
whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not, 'How can we hide our wounds?' so we don't have to be embarrassed, but 'How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?' When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become
a source of healing, we have become wounded healers."

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
- Matthew 11:28-30 MSG -
This month, Vintage Pearls MKE would like to invite you to Havilah Cunnington's YouTube Book & Bible Study on Boundaries. In this study (this journey!), Havilah takes us through fifteen (15) videos, most videos lasting around 10-12 minutes long, and power-packed with practical insight and clarity.
Boundaries are so much more than saying 'no' or a certain personality type. They help us communicate what we need, help us protect, nurture, and steward well what matters most in our lives. Boundaries help us take ownership of what is ours and let go of what is not, discover where we begin and where we end, and so very much more.
All fifteen days of videos can be found below.
