    I really appreciate Rachel Evans article on Driscoll’s new book – read the article a few days ago and was really surprised by some of the quotes from the book (haven’t read the book…).

    I used to think pastors should have authority in counseling for all matters but now that I have experienced that in negative ways – with pastors dealing with suicidal ideation, severe depression, and in one case schizophrenia, etc. And then even in just my first semester of school for social work where we are learning therapy techniques and psychopathology, I realized how much I don’t and didn’t know when even i was counseling youth as a youth director.

    I am interested in reading Driscoll’s book (though i fear that i will only become more of a critic of his). I pray that no one will be hurt by his book though just reading the quotes from the book Rachel said literally shocked me and I can’t get them out of my head. Finally, i really appreciate church’s who are beginning to use educated psychologists, MFT’s and MSW’s to do the counseling at their church’s – i hope more people consiser this in the future because there are many wonderful Christian counselors being trained all over the world.
