The Heart of God An Edge Night on Life Teen's Annual Theme The Edge Night begins with a fun Gather game where the youth will be challenged to come up with as many songs as they can with the words “love” or “heart” in them. They will then reflect on what this reveals about the desires of humanity. The Proclaim begins with the “Heart of God,” theme video and moves into a talk about the heart of God His continual pursuit of us, and the importance of our response to Him. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to discuss the talk, as well as reflect creatively on a few Scripture verses. The Edge Night ends with a time of praise and worship focusing on the beauty of the crèche and the cross, and what it reveals about the heart of God. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is for the youth to understand that God’s heart is constantly seeking after them and they are called to respond to Him. They will learn more about the Heart of God, why they should respond to Him, and why they should desire a relationship with Him.
