Out of the Depths: An Autobiographical Study of Mental Disorder and Religious Experience, by Anton T. Boisen, #15 (Ordained Chaplains: Out of the Depths #15)

Our Ordained Chaplains scripture verse for today is Acts 20:35 which reads, “I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Our Ordained Chaplains quote for today is from Francis Schaeffer. He said, “Biblical orthodoxy without compassion is surely the ugliest thing in the world.”

In this podcast, we will continue discussing the book “Out of the Depths” by Anton T. Boisen. We continue today with “In the Old Home” (Part 5):

The name I went hy among the gang was “Fessor.” There was nothing distinctive about this. I was called “Fessor for the same reason the doctor’s son was called “Doc.” During this period I was rather shy and distrustful of myself. I was fond of books, fond also of working with tools. After school I usually went home rather than off with the others. I had chores to do, wood to split and carry up, the garden to care for and the chickens to feed. And there were many interesting things to do, especially in my grandfather s workshop.
