Bible Society of Australia Youth Videos
Yesterday, I was pointed to a youth blog by the Bible Society in Australia, another member of the United Bible Societies like the Canadian Bible Society where I work. I really liked the idea behind these two videos, which have teenagers simultaneously speaking all of the “right answers” they’ve been told while displaying text for what they’re actually thinking. I’m not sure how much the teenagers themselves wrote the text – some of it may have been exaggerated – but at the very least the core ideas behind them are great.
Check them out:
The big lesson here is simple: teach kids to ask questions. They have them, just aren’t sure they’re really allowed to answer them in a lot of churches. What would it take to create a youth culture where they said what they really thought instead of always giving the “right answer”?
