My Journey Through Depression – Tommy Nelson

Depression is a major issue in our society.

Many in society, let alone the church, do not see it as an issue, or a major issue.  Those suffering will be to told to get over it, suck it up, or try harder.

I listened to an interview on Focus on the Family with Tommy Nelson.

Tommy is the lead pastor at Denton Bible Church, in Denton, Texas.  Tommy was busy doing many things he loved, until one day in May, 2006.  He just crashed.  He couldn’t function.  He suffered from clinical depression.  It took him four months to be able to return to the pulpit.

This is an encouraging story.
