In this space you can use the links to undertake research and find out more about any aspect of the topic which interests you or which has claimed your attention so far. You should keep an open mind about what you read and think critically about the claims the websites make and what they are trying to do. It might help if you compare a few of them and contrast their different ways of raising issues and trying to obtain support.

You are invited to look through the resources and note down in your journal or blog anything which you think challenges or changes your faith and what you think God might be doing in these different situations.
