This week I am preparing for our upcoming Own Your Faith retreat for our high school freshmen. A key topic we will discuss is our identity in Christ. Identity and a sense of self-worth is, for all of us, an important topic, but is especially crucial for high school students as they navigate the transition from childhood to adulthood.

I was reminded of the work of Neil Anderson around the topic of identity. His ministry is based around knowing who we are in Christ. This graphic is a really nice piece.

here is the text version.
