The Resilient Body of Faith | Bible Study
by Brittani M. Blair
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 is a five-part series on how we can heal by falling apart. When things are falling apart, it can be tempting to look for easy answers and perpetuate common myths regarding suffering. This study challenges the harmful assumptions that youth or adults can just get over the things that overwhelm them in life and “bounce back” from any adversity through positive thinking. These five lessons to look through Scripture at people who survived tremendous suffering without losing their concept of God and offers an authentic path into the wilderness and tools for surviving it with faith and hope.
