Sans Mona this week, Jeff & Allen bring in guest host Dylan Van Lant. After sharing interesting stories from their honeymoons, Dylan starts the conversation on mental health and the church by sharing his history with depression. The conversation touches on the taboo stigma of mental health in certain segments of the church, the role of a pastor in counseling and the underlying pressure within certain churches to present yourself as having it all together. The trio ultimately concludes that the best kind of support for mental health and for the church is a healthy, accepting, and empathetic community. The episode then concludes with a getting-to-know-you segment called 2 Truths and a Lie.
