Something Needs to Change â â œ Youth Bible Study Leader Kit
Come Take a Journey. On a trip to the Himalayan mountains, David Platt was confronted with staggering physical and spiritual needs unlike any he had ever seen. On leaving, Platt found himself asking fundamental questions about his life and ministry. He realized that something needed to change. Being confronted with suffering causes us to ask questions that, if we are honest, we would rather ignore. However, if we believe the Bible, ignorance of profound human need is not an option for us. Neither is indifference. We cannot be Christians and turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to the world in need around us. If those responses become the commentary of our lives and our churches, than one fact will be abundantly clear: we were not following Jesus on our journey through this life. What does it mean to follow Jesus in a world filled with urgent physical and spiritual needs? In this Something Needs to Change Teen Bible study, David Platt explores that question as he takes you on a life-altering trek through the Himalayas.Something Needs to Change Teen Bible Study Leader Kit Includes a Bible Study Book and one DVD with eight 15- to 20-minute video teaching sessions featuring author David Platt, filmed on location in remote, unreached areas of the Himalayas.
