Author(s): Ally Barrett, Tim Sledge
This follow-on from the popular Youth Emmaus books is an exciting new course for young people. Get a Life! approaches some of the big questions that 13-18 year-olds face in their secondary school years, including issues of vocation, calling, gifts, passions and the big question that many young people dread being asked: 'What do you want to do with your life?'.
Written in an accessible manner, the five sessions draw on contemporary culture and include interactive material to explore the issues and themes of calling, gifts and service.
Ideal for 13-18 year olds who are making big decisions about the future, as a pre- or post-confirmation course, as a Lent course, or as an after school series.
Includes fully photocopiable handouts.
