Step 12

Death to Shame

“Shame dies when stories are told in safe places.”  – Ann Voskamp

Shame feeds on isolation and darkness.  It hates to be brought into the light.  When you share your story, even a tiny piece of it, a light shines on that shame weight and it starts to lift.

What tiny piece of your story could you share? Who is your safe place?

Mercy Street will meet this Saturday, September 21st at 5:30pm at Lakeland Community Church in Lee’s Summit.  Childcare will be provided.  We will continue our focus on Step 12.
