Goal of this Edge Night
The goal of this Edge Night is for youth to recognize God’s divine image in every human person and identify ways to honor this dignity in themselves and others each day.
Edge Night at a Glance
This night focuses on the dignity of the human person. The youth will learn that they are created in God’s image and likeness. Our human dignity comes from God and rests in Him alone. When we struggle with self image (a human condition), we fail to see that we are deeply known and loved by God. We are created in the image and likeness of God and therefore are good – very good. We are all encouraged to recognize our dignity and identify ways to uphold of the dignity of others.
The Edge night starts out with a fun game for each youth to get to know one another better. This will transition into the teaching about how God knows us intimately and how we are called into relationship with Him. The small group time gets the youth talking about ways that we sometimes compromise our dignity and/or devalue the dignity of others. The small groups will take a look at how Jesus related to those who were looked at as “the least” in society and sets an example of how we are called to treat all with dignity. The night ends by giving the youth the opportunity to pray a decade of the rosary for those who may be seen as “the least” in our own society.
