“Sane Faith in the Insanity of Life – Part One”

When a diagnostic category is applied to your struggles, the medical sounding language turns your life experience into a ‘condition’. It’s something you ‘have’ and others don’t.

In part one of this article, David introduces us to five people and their diagnostic labels. He begins his response to their struggles using Psalm 23. He contrasts the life of care, hope, and connectedness offered by God—sane faith—to the life of isolation, disappointment and fear, offered by the ‘Antipsalm 23’.
