A person can be adrift but be nowhere near a body of water.
Joe Kissack realized that lesson one day in a moment of clarity in the midst of deepening depression.
The television and film producer had a successful career, a loving family and the mansion, car and other trappings of wealth. But he was miserable.
Kissack shared his descent into depression and the faith that helped him regain control of his life during the annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast Saturday. The author of “The Fourth Fisherman” bared his soul to a gathering of business, civic and religious leaders.
More than 400 people packed Jonathan Byrd’s Cafeteria to pray for the city of Greenwood and the people who work to make it successful, particularly Mayor Mark Myers. Firefighters, police officers and sheriff’s deputies sat with business owners, elected officials and pastors as they appealed to God.
