Teenagers Matter: Fostering Faith through Moratorium

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do your students own their faith or are they living on a borrowed faith of others? How do you know? Could a crisis of faith be a sign of spiritual growth? Research on adolescent identity formation demonstrates that ownership of faith requires significant questioning and reflection. When teenagers fail to engage in such questioning before high school graduation they often drift from faith in college. How do we stop the drift?  This seminar will include an actual lesson you can use with students and parents to help introduce them to the process of fostering faith through moratorium.
