How can we overcome our fears of not being enough, of falling short, of losing face? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Ken Shigematsu. Ken is the senior pastor of Tenth Church in Vancouver, one of the largest and most diverse city-center churches in all of Canada. Ken is an international best-selling author, and his latest book is titled, “Now I Become Myself.” Together, Ken and Jason explore how God’s grace can bring healing to our feelings of inadequacy, shame, and envy. Ken also shares how we can take down the masks that we often wear in ministry and find our true selves in Christ.
