About the Weekend

Shame infiltrates relationships with God, with others, even within ourselves. Often hiding behind other emotions, shame can cripple our attempts to love. 

Shame never disappears in solitude. Come and learn as Heather Davis Nelson invites us to not only be healed of our own shame but also be a part of healing for others. She shines the life-giving light of the gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, giving us courage us to walk out of shame’s shadows and offering hope for our bondage to brokenness. 

Join us this weekend for a time of rest, reflection, laughter and prayer as we take up the calling of following Christ together. Let us discover the only real and lasting antidote to shame: exchanging our shame for the righteousness of Christ alongside others on this same journey.
