CAST ALL YOUR CARES UPON HIM (MATTHEW 11:28-30)

Two words are most emblematic of modern society: stress and depress. Stress is the contribution or cause and depression is the condition or consequence. Stress lasts for a few days, but depression can last for a long time.

The Mental Health Association of Hong Kong (MHA), a large NGO funded mostly by the government, found that in one survey it carried out in 2014, a dramatic 50 percent of respondents felt they had poor mental health. Twenty-five percent reported levels of stress and anxiety¡X2.5 times the global average¡Xand 60 percent reported job stress. Around 18 per cent of working persons need psychological treatment.

Be Called to Him ¡V You are Invited!

28 ¡§Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
