This is the 11th in my Lenten series of posts about Monica A. Coleman’s book on faith and depression: Not Alone. I will wrap it up tomorrow with an Easter post. I have received a lot of wonderful feedback, mostly from colleagues in the Unitarian Universalist ministry who also live with depression. Monica A. Coleman herself even posted a nice comment on the last post. That was a wonderful blessing. Thank you, Rev. Coleman for both the comment and this book, which has truly been a pastoral experience both to read and to discuss.
I am a physical person. I like touch. I like holding hands, for example. I like hugs. I think that sometimes we play down how much simple touch means to us and how important it is.
