My minister shared something with me that I would in turn like to share with you.
First, a word about my minister. Alan truly ministers to people. Even though I go for long stretches of time without attending church, he still believes that part of his role as pastor of the church is to minister to me.
He has been generous with sharing others’ and his own the wisdom and ponderings during the last few months as I’ve faced difficulties. I appreciate his emails “checking in” and the time he has shared with me for conversations about what’s going on in my life, what I believe, and what I don’t believe.
He gets that religion and the spiritual are not easy things for me because of my OCD and depression.
Most recently, he shared a sermon/blog post called “I’m Through with Love” by Matt Gaventa, a minister who serves in a nearby county.
Gaventa’s story about his father and his understanding of love has me thinking about depression and love and grace in whole new ways.
