Social-Light Social Nature of Humanity About this Life Night The night begins with a forced isolation – no talking, no eye contact, nothing. The skit that follows is a humorous look at the isolation that can happen through so-called social media. The teaching will highlight the Trinitarian nature of God and how we are created in that nature, meaning we are made for community. The Break will give the teens a chance to build community and discuss Scripture in small groups. Finally, this night will close by giving each teen a prayer partner for the semester and interceding for others in prayer. Goal of This Night The goal of this night is to introduce the semester on social justice by focusing on the social nature of humanity and how our nature reflects the nature of God. This night will help the teens understand how our faith is connected to the greater community.

Because of this, we are created for community. Our social nature is at the heart of all Catholic social teaching. We cannot simply live for ourselves and ignore others. We are called to “love our neighbors as ourselves. If we become isolated from others, we cannot live the fullness of Christianity. We must be on guard against anything that separates us from community. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night! If you would like the full verison of this resource please sign in.
