Beat those blues

A survey showed that people who attend church are less likely to suffer from depression. “The higher the worship frequency, the lower the odds of depression and mania,” says researcher Dr Marilyn Baetz, of the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, who carried out the study.

Hmmm. I wonder if they included clergy in that survey!

  1. Sally, I have read and read and read. My desk is clear of Church Timeses, other parish magazines, articles and mail. However, three funeral have come in so I guess I’d better get down to it.

  2. Perhaps it depends on who else is at church with us. I can think of a few bad experiences, but happily a lot of good times in churches. Hope you are recovering well.
