Join Rev. Barbara Crafton as we explore her book Jesus Wept: When Faith and Depression Meet. We all hope and expect to find joy in our faith. But sometimes joy cannot reach us — like an impenetrable glass wall, depression can separate us from all that is lovely. Sad is one thing, but this is something else: puzzling, seeming to come from nowhere, impervious even to the comfort of those who love us.

Many people of faith have personal experience of depression, or love someone who does. Sometimes it makes us doubt ourselves — if I am really a Christian, why do I feel so empty? Come to an afternoon workshop that explores the riddle of depression and faith, offering avenues of hope for you or for someone you love. Meets in the Sanctuary.
