Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren is offering encouragement to those struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts, emphasizing that "no matter how dark things are, there’s always hope.”

“We all face dark days and thoughts of suicide affects people of all ages,” The Purpose Driven Life author said in a Sept. 10 Facebook video. “There’s a misconception that suicide only affects young people, but the highest rates of suicide are among men my age. This breaks my heart and I want to say to all of you, I am sorry for the pain that you’re experiencing. Please know you are not alone. No matter how dark things are, there’s always hope.”

Warren encouraged those struggling with suicidal thoughts to remember three things: There's a purpose for your life; you are loved, and you are needed in this world.
