Goal for the Life Night:
This Life Night will break open the first three commandments. The goal for this night is to help the teens understand the importance of priorities as they relate to God. This night will give the young people practical ways to set their priorities to focus their day completely on God.
Life Night at a Glance:
We all have priorities—we order our time and energy according to our priorities. Unfortunately for many of us, what we claim as our “top priorities” and the truth of how we live does not always match up. Our teens can get so overwhelmed with the demands on their energy and time that a relationship with God seems like “just another thing to do.” The first three commandments remind us that He should be first in our lives above all other things. The Life Night starts with a video about a teen being bombarded with all the things he has to do and people he has to interact with in a day. The video ends with the teen so overwhelmed that he just goes back to bed. The teaching for the night will focus on how our priorities relate to God and how God should relate to our priorities. In the Break the teens will make a list of their priorities and discuss where or if God fits into them. The Send will give the teens an opportunity to invite God into their priorities before the Blessed Sacrament.
