Dealing with mental illness as a Christian can leave you feeling Spiritually dry, but it doesn't have to! - This week, Cody and Elaine talk with Robert Gere about coping with mental illness as a Christian. They talk about how the church has wrongfully and rightfully handled the issue, how we need to understand the balance of spiritual and professional help, and how we can bring to light the battle that takes place within the mind.
