(resources from our Summer 2023 teaching series on the subject of "who does God say that we are?")

Questions of identity are everywhere in our culture: identity politics, gender identity, 'you do you', be yourself, whoever that is. Our identities are no longer just about where we are from, our family, our faith and our physiology. It's not even just about what music you like, what skills you have or what your peers say about you. While these issues still matter in the formation of our children's identities, and in many ways the voices they hear are amplified due to social media, there are now more fundamental questions being asked. Where do we turn to discover who we are?

Over the last three centuries questions of identity have been dislocated from what we receive from outside of ourselves and instead people turn inward to discover who they are. It is no longer "who does God say I am?" It is now, "who do I say I am?" What do I feel like I am?

This turn is fundamentally anti-God. It places us in the position of the creator, not of a creature who has received a nature and identity from their creator, a self-creator. From Genesis 3 onwards, whenever humanity has tried to play God it has gone badly for us. 

This is why we and many others are seeking to help our children and teenagers by teaching them God's way of forming our identity. It is to listen to Him about what He says about us in creating us and saving us. This Summer term in 2023 ,we will be running a syllabus that focuses on just that: who does God say that we are? Precious, purposeful creatures, wonderfully made, saved to be His children and much more.
