Bad News An Edge Night on Suffering and Evil Summary This Edge Night begins with a Gather dynamic that challenges small groups to find pieces of good and bad news in a newspaper. This activity provides a transition for the Proclaim, which addresses the challenge of suffering and evil. During the Break, the youth journal about areas where they see God present in the world and then discuss how to approach and deal with suffering. The Send invites middle school students to pray for the “bad news” they found during the Gather and then pray at the foot of the cross and unite areas of personal suffering or struggle with Jesus’ suffering. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help youth understand why suffering and evil exist in the world and are allowed by God who is good and loving.
