Count Your Blessings An Edge Issue Night on Thanksgiving About this Edge Night This Edge Night begins with some fun Thanksgiving themed games, and it transitions into a teaching about learning to be truly thankful this time of year. During the Break, the youth will have an opportunity to make a cut out of what they are thankful for to display in their house, and they will also have a chance for small group discussion. The night will end with a Thanksgiving Prayer. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to make the youth more aware of the blessings they have in their lives. Particularly at the time of Thanksgiving we should reflect on what God has given us. Youth will also be reminded that the Eucharist, which in Greek means thanksgiving, is the greatest prayer of thanksgiving we could ever participate in. Special Note: If you are a parish outside of the United States, adapt this night to follow your country’s traditions and customs of a similar holiday. You can also modify the night to just teach and encourage the youth to be more thankful.
