Over the past few weeks, we've talked a lot about the very real challenges that have come our way during the COVID-19 pandemic. It's as if things we have wrestled with—weaknesses if you will—become more intense. Or maybe we're challenged by an issue that we've never dealt with before.. at least at this level. Maybe for you today it's depression. Many Christians mistakenly believe that true Christians don't get depressed, and this misconception heaps additional pain and guilt onto Christians who are suffering from mental and emotional distress. Our good friend Dr. Greg Jantz joins us to chat a bit about this.
Also, the most Googled mental health concern in Florida is: intimacy issues. That's according to a recent study. The truth is your sexuality is inseparable from your spirituality. Sadly, most churches are silent on the subject. Dr. Juli Slattery isn't! She joins us for a chat this morning. Got a question for her?
