Out of the Depths

Message by Mr. Daniel Whitehead, Executive Director of Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries

Text: Psalm 130

1. What are the depths?

2. The courage to cry out to God.

Out of the depths I cry for 2 things:
a. To be heard
b. For mercy

3. How should we respond as a church community?
a. To wait with
b. To listen

Questions:

1. Approx 40% of the Psalms are lament. Why do you think God includes so many laments in the Psalms?

2. Why do you think there is so much stigma around depression?

3. How can we, the church, practically give a voice to people whose voices have been silenced by mental health challenges, like depression?

4. In what ways does God call us to be a “waiting people”, and how can we wait with our friends who are suffering?

5. Have you ever considered that depression could be a means by which God can reveal His glory more fully to a person. What do you think about this?
