'Sanity is a shared model of reality". Well, thought that was a quote by someone wise, but Google doesn’t seem to have heard of it so maybe we can claim it? The point is that we can’t actually do sanity on our own , or at least most of us can’t most of the time. Tons of research on mental health shows that informal social support networks are the single most protective factor against depression (and absence thereof the biggest risk factor). And we hear so many people in ministry saying they feel isolated and lonely. That’s why the ‘together’ part of the Hub strapline is so important. This isn’t something any of us can do on our own, or should need to try. The Hub is intended to be a place we can belong – sharing online and connecting back in the real world.
