A really good read.
"To spend our time frantically strategizing about how we’ll cross the flooded river is so instinctive, even though it is also foolish and needless.

"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."
