Why Christian Love Matters in Depression

Good read!
"As Christ’s followers we gladly leap into the mission field, cook meals for the destitute, and embrace the grieving; but when depression strikes, misconceptions can deteriorate this spirit of compassion. At best, we practice silence and avoidance. At worst, we blame the sufferer and disregard the depressed as too lax in faith to pull themselves from the depths."

thegospelcoalition.org Too often sufferers of depression find the church to be a home for ridicule, rather than truth and love.

New Study Details How Porn Harms Australian Millennials

fightthenewdrug.org In this week's edition of What's The Research, we delve into a study that reveals that millennials are seeing, first-hand, the harmful effects of porn.

[11/29/17]   Holidays can be overwhelming. Or, it can be a therapeutic time too. For instance, smells of cider, hot chocolate, or pine can remind of past memories, hopes of future memories, or peace in the moment. Sometimes it is good to pay attention to what our senses are telling us!

So, remember to stop and smell the holiday “roses” during this busy season!

Why Are You Worried?
