    • Who do you admire in life? Why? What qualities stand out to you that they express?
    • What qualities would you bring to the program?

My spiritual toolkit has been expanded a lot since Compass started. It’s cool to be close with a group of other Christian Science teens where we can relate to each other, and it makes me feel stronger as a Christian Scientist in return.
