Paul and SusanAchieving Total Conquest Over Depression

Thursday night, January 7 @ 7pm.

Everyone wants to be happy. Happiness is the essence of a quality life. Closely akin to happiness is peace; a relaxed and tranquil state of mind. Clinical depression prevents both and thrusts one into the pits of darkness and despair. Trouble in life can put people into a day by day survival mode, clinical depression puts people into an hour by hour survival mode.

This type of depression is an oppression of the soul that often torments people with out of control thoughts coming from a racing mind. The person may experience psychopathic thoughts that are totally out of character for the individual. Interests and enjoyments vanquish—the depressed person loses all self confidence and believes they are losing their mind.

Depression’s greatest ploy is how it is experienced; it seems to be a foe that attacks from outside of us and oppresses whomever it chooses. In fact, the medical model of depression does nothing to lessen that fear. Can depression come upon us in the same way that we catch a cold? What are its causes, and what is the cure? Is there a cure? Is there hope for those stricken with major depression?

Susan and Paul will speak from their own experiences with clinical depression, and how it has stricken others. The topic of depression has been a focus of Paul’s studies for 35 years, and he has experienced it as an unbeliever and believer. But, ideas that come from experience alone are not adequate; facts must explain why life is experienced in the way that it is.

Don’t give depression another year; join Paul and Susan live and contribute to the discussion.

      Sorry I didn’t get it posted yesterday, but Susan wants to do at least two more programs on this subject. My thing is to lay foundations and let people take it from there as I am not here to think for people, but Susan has persuaded me to take this into way more detail. We will post scripts for all three programs, but I am still working with the first one. Might have it posted tonight. I am revising it to coincide with at least two more programs on the subject.

    The 5th wepon of depression: the downward spiral.
    When one considers Reformed theology’s “Cross Chart”, with the continual emphasis on the DOWNWARD side of the chart, focusing more and more on our own “sinfulness”, is it any wonder then why so many people in “church” suffer from depression?
