To put it another way – this is another illustration of the principle of the two kingdoms.
When it comes to ministering to a traumatized soul, there’s a time and place for clergy with Word and Sacrament, and a time and place for a trained mental health professional.
Together the two working together can help the injured person heal from the spiritual and medical injuries they’ve suffered. However, if one tries to venture into areas they’re not trained for or Called to, only sorrow can result.
