CS Commentary On Brene Brown Videos: it may be confusing to some of you that we are featuring Brene Brown talks on the psychological dynamics in relationships, especially when we are not that familiar with her and do not know her spiritual views. However, the Bible speaks of both Samuel and Jesus as to their development in the eyes of both God and man. 1 John 4 is clear that you cannot love God who you do not see unless you can love your brother who you do see. We have to be human in its fullness before we can truly be spiritual. Brene is good at breaking down the inner dynamics that help us learn to love ourselves and others and become fully human.
