Human | Self-esteem and self-worth: Why bearing God's image is good news for us
Apr 07, 2023 Season 4 Episode 4
James Cary and Rachel Redeemed

Am I good enough as I am? What does it mean to be made in God’s image? What even is to be human? How do we live out our Christian faith in an age of flattery, self-actualisation and narcissism? 

In this episode, we are exploring how we think of ourselves and others in a culture of self-esteem and identity and how we approach this within our churches. We also pick up the conversation on trans-humanism with John Wyatt again.

Join Matthew Mason (Pastors' Academy, Crosslands Cultivate), Professor John Wyatt (Professor of Ethics and Perinatology at University College London and University College London), Ros Clarke (Priscilla Programme, Church Society), and Ben Cooper (Cornhill Training Course) as we interview Keswick Convention speakers, exploring the human obsession with building self-esteem and how the Bible speaks into this culture.
