Goal of the Edge Night
The middle school youth will understand that we can know God because He has revealed Himself to us. God’s revelation was fully given in Jesus and passed on to us through Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.
Edge Night at a Glance
This night will help to set up the semester on Scripture. The youth will see that God desires for us to know Him and His infinite and unconditional love for us. The goal is to help the middle school youth become familiar and comfortable with Scripture.
This session will help introduce the middle school youth to the concept of Revelation. Creation reveals that there is a Creator, but creation alone does not fully reveal to us who God is. We come to know God in three ways: Tradition, Scripture and most fully in the Incarnation. Tradition is the faith passed on to us from those who first believed. The Scriptures are the written transmission and revelation of God’s plan of salvation. The final and complete revelation of God came through the Incarnation of His Son, Jesus Christ.
