This morning, clips from a Ted Talk given by a 17-year-old named Sam Berns in 2013 has been going viral, and if you haven’t seen ii, it’s definitely worth watching.
Berns suffered from a rare disease called progeria, that caused his body to age very rapidly.
Though Berns died in 2014, his legacy as an inspirational figure in the midst of difficult situation remains a powerful one.
Though this clip doesn’t explicitly discuss faith, it does address ideas grounded in biblical teachings: Keeping every thought captive, maintaining joy, contentment, peace and more.
You can see the full talk here.
