Edge Night at a Glance
Pope Benedict XVI has declared a “Year of Faith” beginning on October 11, 2012 and ending on the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 24, 2013. During the upcoming year, he is urging all catholics to re-examine and dive deeper into their faith and share that faith with others. use these two edge nights to help the youth enter in more fully to this year. this particular night will help the youth to focus on their self-image and how they are made in the image and likeness of God.
The Edge Night will begin with the youth creating a company that sells sunglasses that help others to see god. allow for a time of sharing. the proclaim will break open that this is the Year of Faith and how they can deepen their faith during this year.
Take some time in small group for discussion and honestly examine those things that distract the youth from focusing more on god. lastly, end the edge night with prayer and challenge the youth to share about the Year of Faith with their families.
