RSR @ YQ - Depression
Recently I was leading a session on pornography at Youth Quake (Briercrest Bible College). All the seats in the room were filled and there were people standing in the back. There were tears, brokenness, and the realization that there is hope. Speaking about this issue to anyone is not easy, there is a stigma that is associated, and there is also the shame. This issue is kept in the dark; it is known yet unknown, it is loud and it is whispered.
This is not an epidemic but a pandemic which is destroying relationships. We press on, we move forward and we enter the dark places because Jesus has come to bring His light so that people can be free. I left the session with hope because God offers a second chance at life, and He walks those dark places with us.
