Build Up or Break Down An Edge Night on Virtue and Sin The Edge Night begins with a Gather game where the youth will have an opportunity to build something and to destroy it. The Proclaim dives into the different virtues as well as what sin is and the varying degrees of sin. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to discuss and discern virtues in real life. The Edge Night ends with a Send giving the youth an opportunity to reflect on the will of God and living a virtuous life through the guidance of an examination of conscience. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is for the youth to come to a greater understanding of what virtue is and what sin is. They will also learn what it looks like to live a life of virtue and why they should want to live a life of virtue rather than a life of sin. Catechism # 1803 - 1832 # 1849 - 1869 # 2656 - 2658 # 2822 - 2827 Scripture John 10:10 Romans 3:23 Galatians 5:22 -23 Key Concepts – All of us are called to live lives of virtue which is “a habitual and firm disposition to do the good.” Someone who lives a virtuous life performs good acts and gives the best of him or herself. A virtuous person tends towards what is good, chooses what is good, and does good things through concrete actions. (CCC 1803) – Sin is an offense against reason and truth. It goes against our very creation and is a failure to love God and our neighbors. It stems from unhealthy attachment to certain goods and it wounds the nature of a person and the community he or she lives in. (CCC 1849) – It is up to us to choose whether to live a virtuous or a sinful life. It is up to us, with the help of the Church, to form our consciences and to learn what is right and wrong in the moral life. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Edge Night!
