Behind the masks we wear: An honest talk about depression with Pastor Alistair Chalmers

It’s easy to wear a mask to hide our brokenness, but it’s OK to not be OK. It was a huge encouragement to speak with Pastor Alistair Chalmers about his struggle with depression and, more specifically, the hope we have in Christ.

Pastors are broken people. Just like us. No, really. That’s not always easy to remember, but can be so helpful in our most difficult struggles.

In today’s episode, I had the opportunity to speak to Alistair Chalmers, an assistant pastor in Scotland, who is just as broken as you and I are. He has chosen to use his struggle with depression and suicide to encourage others.

You can purchase his book online.

This conversation was so encouraging to me, and I hope it will be for you as well. Find out more about Allistar below on his website.
