This is part 3 of a 4 part talk: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 4
Depression is a common human experience, but one that is especially resistant to change. This workshop will review ways to partner with depressed people as they go through the change process. It will consider critical biblical themes, current views on depression, and the use of psychiatric medications.
In the third of this four-part talk, Ed Welch shows how perseverance can be attractive, lively, and something we aspire to amid depression. He offers helpful and hope-giving Scriptures to those struggling to endure through depression, including the manna principle from Exodus 16. Welch continues with a discussion of the two main factors involved in depression, and he concludes with a discussion of medications used to treat depression.
