When displays of inappropriate speach or behavior are involved (either by the mentally ill or those whose illness is fear of them), there should be opportunities for repentance, forgiveness and reconciliation. That would be a healthy congregation in action. The reputation of that kind of congregation would attract concerned people of every kind. Advice is often best applied to ourselves first. Perfect love drives out fear.

There are some who we try to keep up with their members in compassion as they discover the nature of their troubles but "The system" of family and mental health professionals (that sometimes institutionalize individuals as treatments are attempted) seldom integrate the pastor. I have not had a psychologist or psychiatrist discuss my involvement with a member in an understanding way even when it was just the three of us meeting for the sake of the member's future good. Perhaps this book will help me communicate with both member and health care people more effectively for the sake of the Gospel.
