On Wednesday, March 24, we hosted a webinar entitled “Confucian Shame in Christian Thinking,” presented by Jackson Wu.
For Confucian thinkers, shame is an essential element required for moral development. This understanding is foreign to most Westerners. Yet, does shame have a place in Christian theology? Is it something to get rid of or might it have a role in shaping our character?
During his presentation, Jackson explored the diverse ways that honor and shame affect our moral decision making as well as Paul’s use of these ideas within his letters. Was Paul’s goal rejection, or restoration?
The presentation was fantastic, and we do not want the benefit to go only to those who registered and participated. If you weren’t able to attend, not to worry. A video of the event in its entirety is now available on our website and on YouTube.
Thanks again, Jackson, for a wonderful and thought-provoking presentation.
