Jarrid Wilson’s legacy of hope for mental health

On September 6, megachurch pastor Jarrid Wilson ended his life. What made this tragedy global news: Wilson and his wife Juli had set up Anthem of Hope, a nonprofit to help Christians (and others) struggling with depression. His fellow clergy members continue to wrestle with what this means.

December 6 more than 400 Evangelical leaders gathered at Wheaton for the fourth GC2 conference, Facing Hard Truths and Challenges of Pastoral Ministry. It sounds like a painful, honest, and absolutely necessary conference. Read about it here and here.

If you attended the conference, please tell us your impressions. If you didn’t, don’t despair: The Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health has a great line-up of luncheon discussions in the spring.
