Journey on the River of Faith: Faith Development from Adolescence into Young Adulthood

From: Volume X, Issue 1: Autumn 1989 Pages 23-38


Extensive work has been done in recent years to understand the structures by which human faith develops. The following article presents one possible practical application of faith development theory. Based on the categories of this theory, a discussion-prompting board game was constructed using the analogy of a river trip. Late adolescent were involved in game play along with sponsoring adults in hopes of using community to both confirm them in present faith and prepare them for future challenges. Observation of actual game play confirmed that these results were achieved to some degree. Many possibilities exist for extensions of this practical model to other intergenerational groupings.
