The “Lowest Hell”: Wrestling with Clinical Depression

The “Lowest Hell”: Wrestling with Clinical Depression

The beautiful Christian anthem “the Love of God”, suggests that God’s love ‘goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell’.  May I suggest that ‘the highest star’ requires tremendous objective thinking and measurement? ….But ‘the lowest hell’ resonates quite subjectively with me.

I can name and claim this fact with humor because it is this dynamic trio that creates space for the sparkle. Believe it or not, the sparkle has not always been a given in my life.

Love of neighbor-including the flora and the fauna

The Ozark and Ouachita National Forests, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Yosemite National Park, Nantahala National Forest, and the Buffalo National River are all places that have inspired me to become an advocate for God’s creation. I step into these temples with humility.
