Revitalize An XLT About This Life Night This Life Night is an XLT and will look and feel a bit different than a typical Life Night. It follows the same format; Gather, Proclaim, Break, and Send. However, it is more evangelical, personal, prayerful, and less catechetical. It may feel similar to an Adoration session during a retreat or conference. There are two important handouts, XLT Song Suggestions and 11 Practical Tips for Leading Praise and Worship, found on the Life Teen May 2017 USB and online at LifeTeen.com under Life Support: May 2017. Use them to make this XLT a success. The host is the master of ceremonies. He or she welcomes the attendees, breaks the ice, introduces the format, and begins in prayer. He or she is responsible for setting a personal and prayerful tone and building openness to the work God wants to accomplish. The speaker gives the main talk. He or she is introduced by the host who has laid the groundwork for an exciting, engaging, and thought-provoking talk. The worship leader guides the congregation in praise and worship. He or she is aware of the body and leads them into contemplative prayer. The Gather is a short period of upbeat praise and worship and a light hearted, uplifting welcome by the host. The Proclaim is a powerful teaching that is strongly influenced by personal testimony and scripture and invites teens to turn to God, with faith, for that which they are seeking. The Break is a period of extended praise and worship and Eucharistic Adoration guided by the worship leader. The Send summarizes the Life Night and challenges the teens to continue to live a life of faith in God. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to give the teens the opportunity to grow in their relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through an experience of God’s presence in praise and worship and Eucharistic Adoration. Teens will be prompted to ask, with faith, for that which they are seeking.
