I Will Be With You An Edge Issue Night on Divorce About This Night This Edge Night begins with a Gather game where the youth will be challenged to keep their balance. The Proclaim will discuss how Jesus is with the youth in the midst of a divorce, as well as give them practical tools of what they can do to help the situation. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to pray with Scripture, and the Send allows them to offer up their prayer intentions for those going through a divorce. The Edge Night ends with a short time of praise and worship and a closing prayer. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help the youth understand how to live and trust in the love of God in the midst of their own parent’s divorce, or how to support and help a friend whose parents are going through a divorce. Pastoral Note: This Edge Night does not cover the Catholic Church’s teachings on divorce. Rather, it is an Edge Night focused on helping the youth through their own parent’s divorce or a friend whose parents are going through a divorce. Be sensitive to the youth who are experiencing divorce and use this Edge Night as a tool for some practical ways that they can approach and handle this difficult situation. Catechism # 2382 - 2386 Scripture Isaiah 43:1 -3 Matthew 14:29 -31 Key Concepts • Divorce is not easy for anyone. If you have experienced it, are experiencing it, or if you have a friend who has divorced parents — it is no secret that it affects everyone involved. • Divorce was never God’s plan. From the beginning, He intended for men and women who were married to always be together until death. (Matthew 19:3-9) • There may be many factors about divorce that are outside of your hands, but there are things that you have control over in your own life that you can do to help the situation.
