Week 5, Monday’s Class Reflection

October 23, 2007

This conversation about what comprises identity, particularly with regards to the idea that there is not an authentic identity that can be recovered, has been thought provoking. It reminds me of teaching that was around a good bit a number of years ago that emphasized “finding your identity in Christ.” I never knew exactly how close I came to “finding my identity in Christ” as the concept was a bit esoteric and nebulous. However, I do wonder where Christ’s life and our being made in God’s image is applicable to this conversation about identity, and if so, does it offer a more stable/fixed understanding of identity in a way that is helpful?
