As part of our series on Big Issues, and following on from Tim Lewis’ sermon on depression, Chris shares his experience of suffering from depression over the last 15 or so years. Chris is a member of our congregation at St John’s. Chris talks about how he was helped through counselling and medication (not mentioned during the recording, but discussed later), and on the effect on his faith and importance of friends “coming alongside”.
Tim continues the series on Big Issues – preaching on Depression.
Time starts by mentioning 3 books that may be helpful for those affected by depression:
- Dealing with depression – Sarah Collins & Jayne Haynes
- Battles Christians Face – Vaughn Roberts
- I’m Not Supposed to Feel Like This: A Christian Approach to Depression and Anxiety – Christopher Williams, Paul Richards, Ingrid Whitton
Available from Keith Jones in Yeovil, or a limited number of the first one are available in St John’s.
The service also included an interview with Chris, who is a member of St John’s who shares his experience of suffering from depression. This is available as a separate post.
