Man-Made Origins of Christianity About this Life Night The Gather is a Play-Doh molding competition that requires teens to sculpt busts of famous leaders. The Proclaim talks about Jesus as the Messiah and the importance of apostolic succession. The Break is a Scripture match activity that helps teens connect an Old Testament prophecy with its fulfillment in the New Testament. The Send is a reflection on apostolic succession that connects the experience of a local church to Jesus, closing with a time to pray for priests and bishops. Goal of This Night The goal of Man-Made is for teens to understand the significance of Jesus fulfilling the Scriptures as the Messiah and establishing the Catholic Church.
