The Soul of Shame with Curt Thompson, MD

West End Presbyterian Church
Fellowship Hall

9am-12pm
Doors open & coffee at 8:30am

This event is free & open to the public

We’re all infected with a spiritual disease. Its name is shame. Whether we realize it or not, shame affects every aspect of our life and work. It seeks to destroy our identity in Christ, replacing it with a twisted version of self that results in hiding, faking, fear, and broken relationships.

But God has personally done something about our shame. He is telling a different story for your life.

Dr. Thompson is a psychiatrist in private practice in Falls Church, Virginia. Speaking on his book, The Soul of Shame, he will examine how our shame keeps us from being engaged in relationships, community and vocation.  He’ll encourage us to find freedom in Christ by learning the truth about who He is and who we are as His redeemed people.

For more information, please visit The Soul of Shame or contact Kevin Greene.
