Kilian saw an urgent and significant need to maintain personal, spiritual and professional growth during self-employment as an artist and during ministry as a minister. He struggled through with severe depression and experienced anxiety. He has struggled with God, struggled with the existence of God, wrestled with topics of morality, has been discouraged by churches and modern existentialist Christianity that had left him feeling less than fully human. Feeling at a loss and wanting something real rather than services that only seemed to induced "chorus" experiences without addressing the sufferings and tragedy of life. Now, Kilian continues to publicly proclaim the Truth, without reservation because he has made it a goal to take up every opportunity to speak the truth and speak the truth about his neighbor no matter what the costs to him personally. He says, "People of have forgotten how to be humans, life is full of suffering and disappointments, but there is beauty to be found in the present with a personal spiritual life. Beauty in Brokenness. Beauty is the doorway to the sacred."
