The Body of Christ at Work
by Lauren McDuffie
At Youth Ministry Conversations, we believe you know your group best. This means our resources look a little different than what you may have experienced in the past. We try and create a “buffet” of material so you can choose and pick what works best for your group. You will find ideas, instructions, and possibilities in this packet all related to the theme of “The Body.” How you use them, and how you structure your study is up to you. We hope you enjoy this resource and return in the future to check out other materials.
This study will invite students to think about how the church interacts with and responds to justice issues by engaging with the work of several modern theologians and activists. By reading selections from the work of Walter Rauschenbusch, Howard Thurman, and Martin Luther King, Jr., in conversation with biblical references, the students will consider both the history of the movements in which these faith leaders participated and the contemporary implications for how we as people of faith can be the body of Christ working for justice in the world.
