Seasonal Affective Disorder: Winter Depression

As a Pastor, it is beneficial to realize that people may be more vulnerable at certain times than at others. The death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job and even certain seasons can cause vulnerability. The following article discusses SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder):

“Throughout the centuries, poets have described a sense of sadness, loss and lethargy which can accompany the shortening days of fall and winter. Many cultures and religions have winter festivals associated with candles or fire. Many of us notice tiredness, a bit of weight gain, difficulty getting out of bed and bouts of “the blues” as fall turns to winter.”
