Goal of the Edge Night
The goal of this Edge Night is to show the youth the importance of having personal integrity as a part of their Christian lifestyle and mission.
Edge Night At A Glance
Integrity can best be described as the way one lives his life, not based off of one’s personal code, but based on the life and example of Jesus Christ. We learn about our moral life from
reading the Gospels (what is right and wrong). However, we are faced with choices each day that require us to act with integrity. The dictionary defines integrity as: “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.” Our integrity comes from a Christ-centered life that gives us the freedom to choose what is right.
As the youth enter the room, they will get a sense that they have entered the cafeteria right after lunch. To help the youth focus on the topic for the night, there will be a “silent” skit to gather their attention. The Proclaim will help the youth understand what integrity is, followed by a witness from one of the teen Core Members. In small group, the youth will have time to personally reflect on their own integrity and develop their own silent skit. The night closes with a Lectio Divina.
