Sten-Erik, the Director of Spiritual Formation at DTS, asks who are we? Who am I? Some of us are husbands or wives, sons or daughters, students, ministers, friends, counselors … sinners. With so many factors making up who we are, what is the foundation of our identity? What should be the core of who we are that gives life to every other aspect? In this chapel we look at what it means to be image bearers of God, and part of the community of faith who are in Christ—and why this matters.
