Pull Up A Chair Empathy & Action About this Life Night The Gather is a small group trivia competition in which the teens gain chairs for their table as they answer questions correctly. The Proclaim encourages the teens to actively make room for others by fighting against racial injustice in their sphere of influence. The Break gives the teens an opportunity to learn about and discuss microaggression. The Send is a Mass celebrated for the progress of peoples. Prior to the Life Night series, be sure to implement the At the Table: Core Training as suggested in the introductory material under Core Preparation. The training packet can be found on the May 2019 Life Teen USB and online at lifeteen.com under Life Support: May 2019. Goal of This Night The goal of Pull Up a Chair is to invite the teens to identify and adopt practical responses to racial injustice through action rooted in love and solidarity. Catechism # 822 # 1886 - 1889 # 2446 # 2832 Scripture Genesis 4:8 -12 Psalms 72:1 -20 Luke 5:17 -20 Key Concepts • The Lord calls each of us to honestly acknowledge the evil of racism — where we have been complicit or even participated in it — as well as to recognize the places where we experience privilege so we may walk openly and without hindrance toward racial solidarity. • In the midst of the darkness of racism, there is still hope that God’s final word will be one of deliverance and justice. • Our belief in Jesus asks that we accept the invitation to serve as agents of equity, inclusivity, unity, and charity in a racially divided world.
