In this podcast, Katie Skurja talks about discovering our humanity in the image of God, shame and behavior, grace and identity, paradox and spiritual and emotional maturity, freedom, and intrinsic authority.

Katie runs a private practice in North Plains, Oregon, has a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy as well as a Masters of Spiritual Direction. She speaks with grace and great authority, we absolutely loved this conversation!

Quotes:

“To except our humanity is to have relationship with God. We make the gospel about denying our humanity and that is the exact opposite direction we should go.”

“Inside the presence of God there is only room for one God, so when you want to be God that takes you outside of relationship.”

“When we teach a theology that is lacking paradox it creates and adds to (our sense of) shame…”

“Shame is the most powerful force on the planet, other than grace.”

“If your God isn’t expanding, you’re stuck.”
