Andrew Solomon has written, “Depression is the flaw in love. To be creatures who love, we must be creatures who can despair at what we lose, and depression is the mechanism of that despair… It is the aloneness within us made manifest, and it destroys not only connection to others but also the ability to be peacefully alone with oneself.” In this service, Rev. Rachel and other People’s people reflect on depression and offer wisdom for navigating depression that might be relevant to many of us as we navigate this winter COVID season.
