Becoming a Better Sinner Series 2014

About the structures we put in place to try to make us feel right or belong that result in a residue of guilt from self-betrayal. Here I’m playing with the meaning of the word, a word with so much charge and button-pushing in our world. I find that what others may call a sin isn’t really what I would call a sin.
