For nearly thirty years Sr. Kieran Sawyer, S.S.N.D., has written activities, exercises, discussions, prayers, and retreat capsules for teens that can best be summed up in two words: they work. Now, in The Faith Difference, Sr. Kieran has collected many of her most requested materials and organized them into five easy-to-use sections of lessons, community building, activities, prayer, and games. These materials, whether used separately or joined together by themes, work well in a variety of settings—retreats, religion classes, youth group meetings, workshops—held for high school age youth. All of the units offer clear directions, lists of needed materials and preparations, presentation scripts, and reproducible handouts for teen use. Sr. Kieran, has not only spoken the Good News in ways that teens can really hear, but has taught thousands of adults who work with teens to be equally as effective. A quick look through The Faith Difference will reveal the secret of Sr. Kieran's success—these are materials that cut through the maze of complicated directions and religious jargon to offer simple, proven, ways to share the faith with teens.
