Sharing Deeply


Why we include emotional literacy, values education, sharing our lives as well as our testimony, and the importance of interdependent living at Titus 2:

The Most Private is Often What Resonates the Strongest

The pyschologist Carl Rogers, a person who would know quite well the interior lives of others, has this to say of our inmost thoughts:
I have most invariably found that the very feeling which has seemed to me most private, most personal and hence, most incomprehensible by others, has turned out to be an expression for which there is a resonance in many people. It has led me to believe that what is most personal and unique in each of us is probably the very element which would, if it were shared and expressed, speak most deeply to others.
Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist’s View of Psychotherapy (Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1961), p. 26.

When individualizes have matured in their life recovery to the point that they are comfortable talking about their deepest feelings in accountable community or in public, and are grateful for the things of their past because of how it has formed and informed who they are now, one knows that the work of healing has been accomplished by God.
