Being shamed can be a crippling experience, especially in today's world of social media where photos and video are so often catching people when they least expect it. It can be used for good, and too much use can have dangerous consequences. Isaiah's world and life had it's fair share of shame too. How does God use him because of his shame and help him get beyond his shame? (Lectionary reading for May 31, 2015 second Sunday of Pentecost) ref:

Thank you Doug. Very interested in the power of good from public shaming vs the power of evil, ie. suicide. The shaming topic is rampant and timely and yet linked very well to your chosen scripture. Loved your wise reflection on narcicism and shaming and their connection rooted in a deep-inflicted personal shame. "Caring about the greater good" and "shame resilience" and "a belief in a higher power" are ideas that are sticking with me. Well done! Thank you! Barb
