Depression in Christianity Today

Wow! What a great package in Christianity Today on Depression. I think it does a great job highlighting the complexities of Depression.

The church is bursting with suffering souls. People come to the church for help but even in our culture Depression is misunderstood. I want to do something to help. I see myself becoming more equipped for soul care within the church body.

Pat, I've never told you this, but I admire you for talking about depression. I can hardly talk about it with Richard.
Thanks for leading the way.

Erin, thank you for your comment. I agree. Talking from either side of depression is extremely difficult. The stigma and shame keeps things shut down and internal.
