Be Rooted An Edge Night on the Fourth Commandment About This Night This Edge Night begins with a Gather game that challenges the youth to finish a storyline that has an authority figure who leaves the scene as well as to come up with a skit to show what would happen. The Proclaim explains how the fourth commandment shows us the importance of honoring and respecting not only our parents or guardians, but also all those who have been given authority. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to write an apology letter to a person in authority in their life who they disrespected or did not honor. During the Send, the youth learn about intercessory prayer and have an opportunity to pray a decade of the rosary for different authority figures. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is for the youth to come to an understanding of the fourth commandment, which calls us to honor our father and mother as well as to honor and respect all those who have been given authority. Catechism # 2197 - 2246 # 2685 - 2691 # 2634 - 2636 Scripture Luke 2:51 -52 Key Concepts – God knows that in order for humanity to function properly we need leaders, we need direction, and we need authority figures to help guide us in various activities and help bring order to our lives. – The first place that God calls us to show respect for authority is in our own families by honoring our parents, or those who have been put in charge of raising us, and respecting them. – This commandment also extends to showing respect for all of those who have been given a place of authority. We should all work with those in authority to make our communities and countries a better place. (CCC 2234, 2238-2241) End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Edge Night!
