Self-Examination as a Community Project

The Gospel Coalition 2013 Clarus Regional Conference


In this 50-minute session, Paul Tripp, international conference speaker and Executive Director of the Center for Pastoral Life and Care, unpacks the process of self-examination, and argues that it’s more effective when done in community. The best way to live in the little moments in our relationship is through careful, communicable self-examination.

In each of our hearts sits the temptation to deny the areas of our lives that need God’s grace. When we engage in self-examination in community, others help us see ourselves in a truthful fashion. Don’t go through your life alone—you can’t see every weakness in your heart. Let others help you grow.
