    Thinking about the big questions: Why do people believe in God? Are heaven and hell real? Why do some people believe in something and others don't? What's so special about being a human being?
    Students are encouraged to ask their own deep questions and to reflect on their own opinions and those of others.
  • How can I express myself when words are not enough?

Students explore the different ways that people of faith (and those without religious beliefs) might choose to express themselves on the outside, as well as what people might be feeling on the inside.
