The Pastor With A Thorn In His Side
Depression is increasingly common. This is no less true for those in ministry. Many suffer with depression but for various reasons feel unable to tell their churches about it. Similarly, church members often see the problem, or struggle themselves, but don’t know what to do or how to help.
