David’s Other Goliath
When we look at the life of David in the Bible, we see how his other Goliath was internal. At times he was beset by depression, anxiety and gripping fear. Not only does he give us a window into these all-to-common torments, but he is a signpost of the hope God gives to sufferers.
In any given year, one in four of us suffer from the more serious versions of these (which means we all love and know at least one such person), while all of us endure milder versions. For three weeks we explore the way forward as a church and as affected people in the face of these agonies of the mind.
