The Big Lie An Edge Night on the Fall of Man Summary The Edge Night begins with a Gather dynamic that invites each small group to create and present a “commercial” for a product that make promises the product cannot keep. The Proclaim challenges the youth to understand the impact of original sin and personal sin. During the Break, middle school youth have an opportunity to examine their conscience and then receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during the Send. While the Sacrament of Reconciliation is taking place there will also be a time for the youth to pray before the Blessed Sacrament in Eucharistic Adoration. Goal of This Night This goal of this Edge Night is to help middle school youth understand the impact that original sin has on their relationship with God and the world around them. They are challenged to recognize their own sin and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Catechism # 374 - 379 # 396 - 411 # 2846 - 2849 Scripture Genesis 3:1 -19 John 3:16 -17 Romans 5:12 -21 Key Concepts God created humanity in His image and likeness and created them good, but through a free choice, humanity broke its relationship with God through sin. Original sin has consequences for all humanity and is transmitted to all generations; the consequences are a broken relationship with God, each other, and creation. God the Father does not abandon us to temptation and sin but sends a Savior, Jesus Christ, His Son, to redeem humanity and rescue us from sin.
