Teens and Spirituality

Portada
Saint Mary's Press, 2005 - 72 páginas
For many teenagers, it's not cool to show interest in organized religion. They often believe that religion is something that's not quite real--at least, not as real as everyday experiences like family, friends, foes, school, parties, love, hate, anger, desire, and frustration. The Being Real series shows how Catholicism recognizes the realities of teenage life and calls teens to a higher ideal.

Teens and Spirituality includes information on teens' spiritual life, God's response to teens, and how teens can grow closer to God through specific Catholic practices.

Chapters in this title include:
  • Our Real Spiritual Situation
  • God's Response to Us
  • Why We Should Respond to God
  • How We Can Respond to God
