Voices of Faith
Voices of Faith is a collection of video interviews with young people from three religions - Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Young people from different traditions within each religion talk about their religious beliefs and its place in their lives.
a) Ask students to choose two of the young people - either from the same relgion or two different religions - and listen to what they have to say about their religion and its place in their lives. Ask them to note any key terms of religious language that is used, and to check they understand its meaning.
b) Provide students with a Venn diagram template and ask them to complete this for the two young people whose video they have just watched, and themselves. What similarities and differences do they notice? What further questions do they now have for the two young people?

Developing Secondary RE: Faiths in Britain Today, ed Rosemary Rivett, gives fourteen young people the opportunity to speak, not as representatives of their faith, but rather as individuals offering a glimpse of that faith as they understand it, at a particular moment in time. This publication is available online from RE Today; further details are available here.
