What Does My Kid Think about God and Religion?
with Rev. Aaron Twitchell

Religion and spirituality are deceptively difficult for teenagers and parents to talk about--sometimes even more than the usual suspects like drugs and parties. And yet, research has shown that young people are not only emotionally invested in religious ideas, but also may be "hard-wired" for spiritual exploration. In this webinar, we will cover some interesting research into adolescent spirituality and talk about ways we can engage this aspect of the teenage spirit. Rev. Aaron Twitchell presents.
