depression

Posted by slykwyk on April 14, 2010

I have had the opportunity to meet with 7 local leaders here in Chapel Hill over the last 5 days to talk about the state of needs in this community.  Sometimes that can just get you depressed!  Chapel Hill is a great place to live and is known as a place of some wealth, but like anywhere, there are unmet or slightly met needs here.

These needs range from from food, to books, to educational assistance, to mentoring (the biggest need I have heard so far), to parenting help, to transportation, to supervision of kids who are at home alone.  Some of us live in a world where those needs are met and we lack in nothing.  Yet, even in places like Chapel Hill, there are people who wonder where they will get help and support.

I am the type of person who wishes they could make it all disappear in a second.  As we move forward as a church, we will do our best to make a scratch, a dent in this community to make a difference in people’s lives – physically and spiritually – and hope we can bring others along on this journey.
