Naming the Real

Jun 15 2022 • 1 hr 20 mins


Despite self-doubt and whatever shame and guilt we may carry, the drive to be good lies deep within our humanity. But how do we become good? In this episode—the final episode in the “Critique of Evangelical Christianity” mini-series—we explore how the pursuit of goodness is often just the ego’s game of “looking good and being right” dressed up in fancy clothes, and how rigid religion mistakes looking good for being good. Ultimately, we explore how true goodness only forms in us as we become open to encountering another with openness and vulnerability, which can be terrifying…and is totally worth it.
