Daily, I witness the pain of many, both young and old. I was talking yesterday with a psychologist friend who said that he felt that there was a collective depression here, a tiredness. Through this shadow I see glimpses of light in the humour and stoicism of many of the people. It is, for me, a constant learning curve to find a way to dig beneath the surface to find the young people who need help. The kindness and goodness of some here that advise and share in this search is humbling indeed. As I watch some within the church excluding and ignoring those in need, I equally see those with such a quiet faith, giving of themselves so selflessly.
