Episode 21 -- Depression

In this 10-minute podcast, Tom Mohr reflects on the affliction known as depression– in word and song (“Struggle”). All of us experience it at times in our lives. In this podcast, he shares the story of Abraham Lincoln, perhaps America’s greatest president. Lincoln suffered from debilitating depression for most of his life, and yet he was a leader of great consequence and moral authority. How can leaders live with depression and yet serve in goodness? We can learn much from Lincoln’s story. 

Song Title:


Song Summary: 

Tom Mohr wrote this song as a desperate prayer in the midst of darkness. In the dark of the night, we can lose confidence that God is with us. But He is. He’s always with us. In the battle between doubt and faith, God wins. Robert Berry joins in on instrumentals.  



Tom Mohr is the author of the book "Letters to Rising Leaders". In his new podcast series, he builds on the themes in his book to explore leadership-- especially the connection between Christian faith and action. 

He has created this podcast series for one reason: you are the light of the world. From community to church to charity to nation to planet, God needs a new generation of leaders to rise. Not just any leaders-- leaders of goodness. And goodness doesn't just happen. It takes soul work. Which is why, to our next generation of leaders, Tom Mohr says this: "Come to God, make right your soul, and then go into this hurting world to serve."

Each 10 minute podcast will include stories, biblical reflections and music-- yes, music. Every week, the podcast will end with the song of the week.
