Adolescence is the time in life when humans first gain the capacity to think in more expansive ways and so imagine their lives beyond self-interest.  But they are not likely to do this without prompting.  Dr. O'Keefe argues that religious education for adolescents should provide the Christian narratives and practices that provide the ever-widening horizon of God's love and a vision of hope for the world and their lives.
