Tyler is an eight-year-old boy with cancer who expresses his faith and hope in letters addressed to God. The letters are mailed daily and make there way to a postman with an addiction to alcohol as a way to numb the pain of his past. In this faith review by Jeff Smith, themes for discussion are highlighted — such as fear, hope, prayer, forgiveness, and redemption.

In this lesson for student groups, the youth will discuss, or at least think about, aspects of their lives they hide from the world. Just as Spider-Man wears a mask to protect his identity, we too put on our own figurative masks so people will see what we want them to see. Using a clip from The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and a scripture passage, the leader will take the class through some discussion questions.
