Show Notes

The world says that who we are is up to us: look deep into your heart to find your greatest passions and there you will find yourself. As creatures made in the image of God, we know that there is more to who we are than this. But we still struggle to "find" ourselves and to justify our existence. Why are we so restless? Because we feel responsible for crafting our own identities.  

At the conclusion of John’s talk, co-hosts Center for Public Christianity Executive Director Josh Chatraw and New City Fellows alumnus Micah Vandegrift are joined by Program Coordinator for the Center for Public Christianity and Holy Trinity Local Outreach Coordinator Daniel Lee to reflect on John’s teaching and discuss how it applies to daily life. So, keep listening!
