    Barriers to Belief an Interview w/ Steve Densley

    1:00:35

    Today we are joined by Steve Densley. In this interview, we discuss a talk he gave at the FAIR Conference in 2018 titled "Barriers to Belief: Mental Distress and Disaffection from the Church." There are many different things that may factor into why people may struggle with the church and eventually leave, but one reason that isn't often talked about is how mental health factors may play a role in all this. I hope that this interview can be helpful to church leaders, friends, and family of those with mental health issues, as well as individuals dealing with these kinds of issues. The below links are the video and text of Steve's talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3irFCZPfCnc https://journal.interpreterfoundation.org/barriers-to-belief-mental-distress-and-disaffection-from-the-church/
