233 - Depression in the Christian Life

Depression is one of those things we don't like to talk about. As Christians, oftentimes depression is covered by fake smiles and cliché spiritual platitudes that we would like to think are true but merely serve to hide the shame we don't want anyone to know about. It is time to bring reality to the light. Man good Christian struggle with depression. This week our guest is Pastor Aaron Richert, the author of Depression in the Christian Life: Getting help up from people who have been down.
