Shame & Vulnerability

Vulnerability is something that church leaders have to lead the way in modeling. If church leaders aren’t willing to make themselves vulnerable, it’s hard to expect that those we lead, will feel the freedom to be vulnerable as well.

I was introduced to this talk from Brene Brown by my friends from the Small Group Network. In a poignant, funny talk at TED Houston, Brene shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. It’s a great video for any leader who seeks to develop community and help others move beyond their shame and experience what God intended in our relationships with one another.

Being that this was a secular talk, there is a slight bit of offensive language. I hope you’re able to look past the offensive language to internalize the message that Brene gives.
