bird's nest

Following Jesus does not mean escaping from problems, difficulties, pain, and suffering. It means finding the possibility of hope in all of these experiences and learning to live lives which are marked by the desire for God’s presence even when sometimes that presence is elusive. I think that is one of the many things that I have learned from listening to Christians living with mental health challenges. And this changes our approach to mental health in the church.

How can we help fellow disciples of Jesus going through difficult times to hold on to their vocation even in the midst of the storms?
