Understanding Depression

  Fall 2018

Patrick will be leading the adult class this fall quarter, and we will explore the topic of depression.  Many today deal with depression and anxiety, and Christians are no exception.  The problem for Christians however, is that we are more likely to feel guilty for being depressed, because we’re supposed to be filled with happiness in the Lord, or so we think.  Our guilt over not being happy then compounds our depression.

Our faith has valuable resources for helping us through depression.  We will look at the struggles of Pastor Charles Spurgeon and his counsel to those dealing with depression through a unique book called “Spurgeon’s Sorrows.”  Join us as we look at one pastor’s journey through depression, along with the causes of such sorrow, and how Christians can move forward when depression settles in.
