In this episode of The Hope + Help Project, Christine Chappell interviews author/teacher Terry Powell on the subject of handling depression in ministry. Terry shares pieces of his life-long battle against depression with vulnerable humility, giving us a picture of God’s sustaining grace for those involved in leadership positions. He offers thoughts about combatting negative self-talk, and answers the question, “Is depression a hinderance or a help to fruitful ministry?” The episode also explores the issue of suicide in pastoral ministry, and whether or not the concept of victorious Christian living can be reconciled with the believer’s experience of depression.
