Politics, sexual ethics, social justice - there are always topics that get students talking! Throw religion into the mix and discussions can get heated really fast! Handled poorly in the classroom, hot-button issues in religious education can cause a lot of division and harm - especially in a world where student differences of opinion tend to be "solved" over the blunt edge of social media.

Using elements of Matthew Kelly's "7 Levels of Intimacy", this session will explore a different starting point for such issues - one that fosters respect in the classroom without avoiding strong beliefs or resolving to moral relativism.
