Life Creation About this Life Night This night begins the Life Night series “Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” which has been based around Bl. John Paul II’s audiences, “Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body.” It begins with a fun game that illustrates that men and women complement each other and are better together than they are alone. This game transitions into a video that provides a humorous look at things that do not complement men and women and this provides a foundation for the teaching of the Life Night. The Break gives teens the opportunity to break open the teaching through small group discussion and allows them to build community and trust with the other teens who will be in their small group this semester. The Send is a time of prayer that will give each gender the opportunity to pray over the other for the grace to live as holy disciples of Christ. Goal of This Night This Life Night will introduce the concept of the complementary nature of the sexes and challenge teens to see members of the opposite sex as reflections of God and as a “help” for their own gender.

This gives men and women dignity and worth that is to be upheld and honored. God created men and women to be complementary to each other; men and women are designed to be a “help” for the other. Men and women are equal, but this does not mean they are the same. Each gender has attributes unique to it that reveal the purpose and meaning of the body.
