Relationships are core to our identity as humans. We are relational beings.
Each day is an exercise in the dynamics of our connection to others. Life is the daily navigation of our connection to a lifelong partner, business colleague, sojourner, friend, or the guy at the gym who knows you by name but you don’t have a clue who he is.
The health and success of our relational connection to others are dependent on the level of self and other-worth.
While we know that Jesus has called us to love others in the way that we love ourselves, what do we do if we have an undervalued or overvalued view of self?
“Faith leads us to recreate our world and engage in revolutionary relationships with ourselves and with others, such relationships are life-giving, risk-taking, vulnerable, gracious, forgiving and diverse,” said Rozella Haydée White on the CBF Podcast.
Rozella is the author of Love Big: The Power of Revolutionary Relationships to Heal the World. We sat down with the author, spiritual life coach and leadership consultant to talk about the dynamics of relationships for the health of community, organizations and self.
