The Gifts of Darkness

Reverend Phil SweetGary Greenberg, a psychoanalyst, says that depression, in most cases, is not a mental problem; it’s a sane response to an insane world. In learning to welcome the dark side, particularly in our culture which tends to stay on the yang side of things – the active, extroverted, happy, positive, buoyant and light side, it comes not to aggravate but to cure.

Phil Sweet is a long-time friend of UUFDC, and a marvelous and insightful storyteller. He is full of wisdom, and his messages stretch his audiences to search beyond the superficial.  Prior to retirement, he served as minister of Hope Church in Sturgeon Bay.
