Nailed A Loving God vs. the Reality of Suffering About this Life Night This night will help teens understand that the love of God and the reality of suffering are not in opposition with each other, but come together in the Cross. The first half of the night will allow teens to see the presence of God’s love and blessing in their lives. They will also see how evil is real and often it can overshadow blessings. Both of these realities will come together in a discussion on the beauty of the suffering and death of Jesus on the cross. The teens will understand that the greatest act suffering is also the greatest act of love. The second half of the night will give teens the opportunity to spend time in quiet prayer and reflect on and write down the areas of suffering in their lives. They will then be invited to join their sufferings to the cross by nailing them to a cross.
