We will discuss the difference between sexuality and "sex" ans what our Christian faith says about building healthy relationships. We will also focus on how to communicate what we want/need to achieve a healthy relationship based on our values including (or especially) with regard to use of social media. Specifically, we will discuss scenarios to address the difficult questions of saying "yes" and "no" to sexual behaviors. In other words, we will address questions like: What does a good relationship look like, and what faith value should I base this on? When should I kiss someone? When is it okay to move beyond kissing? Why should I wait to have sexual Intercourse if I'm in high school? How do I start a new relationship if I've already had sex? Is sexting sex? What does good communication look like when it comes to social media?
