HTH: Everything You Think You Know About Addiction is Wrong
In this Ted Talk, author Johann Hari offers some of his research in addition to sharing his own story. The conclusion he reaches points to the Biblical truth that we are made to be deeply known and deeply loved; we are made to be connected (to God, ourselves, and one another) in such a way that we bear one another’s burdens and share in both the beauties and the sufferings of life. Hari offers a paradigm shift for understanding addiction that each of us could benefit from considering seriously. His findings point to the need for the church and will hopefully encourage you in your efforts to facilitate connection amongst your students each week.
Join us for Rooted 2015, an intimate youth ministry conference, where we will explore how the good news of God coming to mankind in the person of Jesus Christ offers student ministers and teenagers, hope, healing and connectedness.
