The Role of the Past in Current Relationships

On today’s podcast, Dan discusses how our past relationships affect who we are today. By examining our past, particularly through the lens of attachment, we are able to recognize old, destructive patterns and discover our God-given potential for goodness.

“We re-enact the dramas of our past in our current relationships and in our current world. The reason we engage the past is to free our heart for the future. […] The way that I am in the world has the potential for rich and deep change.”

“We’re talking about God as compassionate, God as strong, and God as able to create a bridge, a means of rescue and restoration. […] Every relationship is meant to reveal something about the heart and goodness of God.”
