Certain Questions Are Important
How does the question, “What does it mean to be human?,” relate to our sense of worth and purpose? How we answer this question determines the meaning we assign to our life and experience. We could answer by saying humans are just one of many kinds of animals on earth, with no special privileges or meaning than any other animals. Or we could say humans are creatures made in the image of God, intended to live in loving communion with God, each other and the rest of creation, with the goal of eternally becoming more like God.
Answers Have Consequences
Our answer also affects how we define what it means to be whole and healthy as a person. When we talk about transformation and express our value for transformation, we are expressing how we answer the question, “What does it mean to be human?” Why should we want to change our inner self? What should our new, improved self be like?
How Does This Relate to Transformation and Our Podcasts?
We believe that each person is a unique creation of God, and that each human bears within him or her self the image of God. Humans have both physical and spiritual parts, and we have parts to us that are not healthy or whole. When we add to this the bruises and wounds of living in this world, we end up with places within that are unhealthy and wounded.
So if we want to change something or some things about our inner selves, in what way should we be different? What do we believe needs to be changed for us to be healthy and whole? This is what our podcasts address. We want to explore the many questions and issues related to what true transformation and what a healthy human being looks like. We want to examine the wounded and ill parts of ourselves, and how we can experience God transforming the false beliefs and wounded places within us to being whole.
