News Feed Media and the Eighth Commandment About this Life Night More and more, media is becoming a bigger part of our everyday lives. This Life Night seeks to help the teens understand how media and the Eighth Commandment work together. The night will begin with a friendly competition between small groups to come up with the best “status updates” for different topics. Following the competition, the teaching for the night will challenge the teens to use media with responsibility and integrity. In small groups, the teens will discuss their use of media and create a plan that helps them limit the amount of time using media. Finally, the night will close with a reflection on Pope Benedict XVI’s message on the role of media in our current culture. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to help the teens understand the importance of perception through social media. This night will also challenge the teens to be people of integrity when they use technology and to commit to using media in a healthy moderation.
