Our guest will draw on biblical knowledge and personal stories---including her recent cancer diagnosis---to help us understand and appreciate the meaning behind seven of the titles given to this Third Person: Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby. This is a conversation not to be missed.
Finding the strength to effectively cope with ongoing depression in one’s life may seem like an insurmountable personal and faith challenge for many followers of Jesus. You may feel like you’re useless, unworthy of joy, and a complete spiritual failure. While a number of books have been written on depression from a psychological perspective, our guest today will address spiritual concerns to provide hope and comfort for the faithful. Join us to hear how his how-to guide offers practical guidance and holistic methods to relieve the distressing symptoms of depression in three Christ-centered ways: Recognize God’s abiding presence, Reach out to others (2 Corinthians 1:3-5) and Respect your limitations.
