Formless The First Day - Session One About This Session The Gather welcomes the teens and is an extended period of glow in the dark games, designed to kick off the retreat with excitement, energy, and a little bit of chaos. The Proclaim explores the times that God created order out of seemingly chaotic situations and how He calls us to allow Him into our lives to bring order, peace, and purpose. The Break is a reflection and small group discussion on our priorities. The Send is a period of praise and worship surrendering our time over this retreat to God. Goal of This Night To introduce the idea that God has a history of creating order from chaos and to invite the teens to be open to the creative and formative work of God in their lives. Catechism # 279 - 280 # 296 - 299 Scripture Genesis 1:3 Isaiah 64:8 Matthew 8:26 Mark 4:35 -41 Luke 5:16 Key Concepts – Our lives may sometimes feel as though they are without form and chaotic. – Our Creator God created everything from nothing. He formed humanity from the dust on the ground and breathed life into us. Only He can bring true order, peace, and purpose to our lives. – We are called to be like clay, pliable so that God can continue His formative work in us. We are called to be open to the creative breath of God every day of our lives, especially over this retreat. Key Terms – Retreat – Creation End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
