I’m not sure if there is another topic that has been as uncomfortable to talk about in the Church as mental health and illness. I think we are even more comfortable talking about issues surrounding the topic of sex, than we are about mental health.
This conversation gives you a deeper look into the lives of myself, and Pastor Dalton, as we process with Pastor Alex our own battles with depression and faith in Jesus.
My hope is that you will find the same encouragement and hope that those who watched live did. That despite the hardships and the isolation that often times mental illness can bring, you find encouragement to move forward.
Ultimately, I hope you come to understand how much Jesus loves you and wants you to be in a Christ-centered community.
