I am a Lutheran pastor who has lived with depression my entire life. Most of this blog is devoted to thoughts about mental illness and faith. Most of the sermons I’ve preached in the past few years are archived here. I’ve also written a extensive collection of essays entitled “Snapshots of My Depression,” which recall times in my life when my illness came out in a particular way. These essays have expanded into a book called Darkwater: Memoir of a Pastor Who Lives with Depression. Darkwater will be published by Boyle & Dalton Publishers sometime in 2020.
