Taking Off the Mask

May 6, 2019

Author and Bible teacher Catherine Parks reveals the surprising secret to deeper relationships. Parks tells what happens when we decide to get real about our sin through repentance and confession. She remembers how she learned the basics of forgiveness as a child, and how her parents modeled self-reflection and grace. Parks recalls her friendship with her friend Amber, who consistently asked her the deeper questions. Though resistant at first, Parks remembers how freeing it was to finally be honest and open with her friend, and what she's doing to encourage others to do the same.
