The question I most want to ask is why are teenagers so uncomfortable with discussing religion? Even if you go to church every Sunday or even to Confirmation you probably don't go beyond that and try to reel in non-believers. I think that if you are truly passionate about your faith you can put your trust in God and ask for His help to spread His word and love. It doesn't matter if your Jewish, Catholic, Non-denominational,etc. but it's okay to speak out about your believes. It is a little intimidating but in the end it's the best feeling in the world when you know that you helped change one of your peer's life by leading them to God.

AMEN! I'm a Chris.tian and I'm teaching and influencing my own peers. It is hard at times, but there's at times they turn around. Besides, I talk about God on a daily basis. I talk about Him every day.
