Darkness Is My Only Companion – White Horse Inn

Description:
Why does God allow so many of us to experience deep forms of depression to the point of despair, and how do we counsel those in our lives who struggle with the torture of the soul? How can pastors be better prepared to recognize symptoms of mental disorder and what can churches do to help those who struggle with this issue? Joining Mike to discuss this issue are Kathryn Greene-McCreight, author of Darkness Is My Only Companion: A Christian Response to Mental Illness, and Harold Senkbeil, author of Dying to Live, and board member of Doxology: The Lutheran Center for Spiritual Care and Counsel.
