Overfed Yet Starving A Life Night on Substitutes to God's Love About this Life Night As the teens arrive, they are welcomed and encouraged to participate in one of the many recreational activities offered. There is only one rule; no cell phone use allowed. The Proclaim focuses on how God satisfied His people throughout salvation history and how He continues to satisfy us today. It also brings awareness to behaviors that we think we enjoy but, in reality, may prevent us from being truly satisfied. During the Break, the teens identify and set limits for these behaviors. The Life Night ends with a time of Eucharistic Adoration and the opportunity to be satisfied by the Bread of Life. Goal of This Night The goal of Overfed Yet Starving is to bring awareness to substitutes of God’s love that keep us overfed yet starving. The Life Night introduces the teens to ways they can be satisfied by the extraordinary, the Bread of Life, in Eucharistic Adoration, as opposed to ordinary substitutes, like streaming TV and social media.

Instead of turning to God and being satisfied in Him, we turn to lesser substitutes like streaming TV and social media. • God has provided for and satisfied His people throughout salvation history, and He continues to satisfy us today. We must stop the cycle of consuming things that do not satisfy and turn to Jesus, the Bread of Life, to be satisfied. • Experiencing God and the satisfaction that comes from a relationship with Him is not limited to prayer. God’s presence can also be found in our relationships with others and recreation. Key Terms Satisfaction Prayer Recreation End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
