When Your Pastor Kills Himself

2 thoughts on “When Your Pastor Kills Himself”

  1. Simone, my heart goes out to Pastor Andrew and his family. Depression is a lonely, exhausting and sometimes debilitating disorder. Its causes, symptoms and severity are varied, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treating it. I agree, the church needs to be more sensitive, not just to the symptoms of depression but also concerning the expectations for ministry it upholds for its congregants and leaders. Two of the key things I’ve learned while coping with this disorder: (1) Know your triggers, address them and (2) God’s grace is sufficient. He, more than anyone, intimately knows this thing we wrestle with and extends His grace for as long as we need it.
