Dana Young was our guest speaker this morning as she provided the reflection on the way that "God has been Holding her Life" during the Time of COVID-19 and before. Dana spoke of the "Imposter Syndrome" and a little research this morning correlates with the fact that some 70% of us suffer from this condition sometime during our lives. Many of us see ourselves as "Fixers" and find it very difficult to 'put the shoe on the other foot' and ask for help when we stand in need.
"Imposter syndrome can be defined as a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success. 'Imposters' suffer from chronic self-doubt and a sense of intellectual fraudulence that override any feelings of success or external proof of their competence." Dana's advice was to 'be open to vulnerability... more able to share, listen and learn." She reminded us that we can't fix COVID-19 but what we can do is to "connect authentically... (allow) shining divine light into our lives... on our journey to wholeness."
Take time to view the Youtube for this morning's worship service. You won't be disappointed.
