Counterfeit A Life Night on Counterfeits of God's Love About this Life Night This Life Night begins with a competition to convince your small group that your favorite love song is the best love song ever. The Proclaim discusses the self-giving love of God and the different types of love we experience in our day-to-day lives. It also discusses God’s design of human sexuality and how agape love is extraordinary love. The Break gives the teens an opportunity to process and discuss the Proclaim in small groups. The Life Night ends with the opportunity to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Goal of This Night The goal of Counterfeit is to discuss human sexuality and desire for romantic love from a Trinitarian perspective and bring awareness to the many counterfeits of romantic love that we experience in our day-to-day lives. The Life Night builds hope of being loved and loving others in an extraordinary way.
