Shedding Masks Retreat Session Two on False Masks Summary The Gather is an obstacle course race. The Proclaim dives into the opposing messages of the pressure to wear masks so as to appear “normal” or “good” versus living authentically as a child of God. During the Break, the youth play a game and discuss false masks that they wear in their own lives. The Send is a powerful witness skit by the Core Members illustrating what happens as we shed our masks and freely live out the authentic version of ourselves as Christ intended. Goal of This Night The goal of this session is for the youth to explore the conflict between a desire to put on masks to fit in and Christ’s call to live authentically. Catechism # 799 - 801 # 2470 Scripture Psalms 139:1 -5 Psalms 139:13 -16 John 8:31 -36 John 14: Ephesians 4:17 -32 Key Concepts – Christ calls us to live authentically. – Though society may tempt you to hide who you truly are just to fit in, you have been created as a unique and unrepeatable child of God with a particular gift that the world needs. – Choosing to do what is good and living authentically without worrying about what other people think brings freedom.
