Exploring Shame and Guilt

Date recorded: 27 May 2020 | Speaker: Richard Winter | Event: ELF Disciple Makers Network


Shame is a powerful and complex emotion. It has been called the “swampland of the soul”. Shame is often the result of trauma and frequently drives anger, anxiety, depression, and compulsive behavior. Uncovering and distinguishing shame and guilt in our own stories is often painful and difficult, but it is necessary for healing. The Bible speaks clearly to both of these emotions. We explore how shame is resisted and exposed in counselling, and how a gospel remedy can be offered and applied.
