Edge Night Outline
Goal of this Night
The goal of this Edge Night is to help the middle school youth understand the Trinity and that it shows us that God is Love.
About this night
The Trinity — God three in one — is a mystery of faith. Although the Trinity is a deep mystery, we can seek to understand it with our greatest human ability. As Catholic-Christians, we believe in a triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Holy Trinity teaches us that God is love. The Trinity is a communion of three persons — a divine relationship of love.
At the beginning of this Edge Night, the middle school youth will work together and compete in groups of three to complete a team braid. The Proclaim will explain how, together, the three persons of the Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — show how God is love. For the Break, the youth will have a short discussion on the Trinity and love, leading to an activity where they explore God’s love and how we can love others. For the Send, the youth will reflect on ways they have failed to love God and ask Him to help them be a reflection of the love of the Trinity.
This week’s Edge Night looked at the mystery of the Trinity. The middle school youth were challenge to accept the mystery of the Trinity as not something solvable, but something to reflect on and accept with faith. Ultimately, the Trinity teaches us God is love. This week consider the following discussion questions:
- What did you learn tonight about the love of God the Father?
- Which person of the Trinity do you pray most often to and why?
