Understanding and responding to depression as a Christian. Depression is a common, disabling condition – which affects Christians too! In this seminar we will gain an understanding of what depression is and what causes it. We will look at some of the particular dilemmas that Christians who struggle with depression face. We will also see that there is hope in the midst of depression as we consider how it may be treated and how we can best respond to what has been called a ‘stubborn darkness’.
