We fight depression through knowledge, faith, and the power of community.
This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 1 John 3:19-20
A patch covers over holes, weaknesses, wounds. It doesn’t simply hide imperfections. It restores an item back to its original functionality. A good patch will hold through the rigors of life. Clothes are often patched, but so are boats and tires... really just about anything can be.
A patch is also a visible reminder that an injury took place. It dispels the illusion of perfection but with it a different kind of beauty becomes possible. Patched clothes have character. They have a story, and when the patch is done lovingly it can turn a regular pair of pants into a beloved one.
That’s our goal here. If you’re a part of this community, life has surely delivered you a blow, but we want to help you patch it up and get back to living fully. The patch is a memento to the hurt that did indeed happen, but it’s also a sign of healing. It’s a sign of having struggled, but also of having overcome.
