The Adventurer Franciscan Spirituality About this Life Night The Gather is an outdoor game that incorporates the Franciscan theme of community and togetherness with a fast-paced competitive flair. The Proclaim highlights the tendency we have to keep our faith life private, and introduces the idea that prayer is meant to be both personal and communal. The Break is a Franciscan approach to lectio divina on Matthew 10:7-13. The Send is an outdoor, prayerful reading of The Canticle of the Sun, followed by a time of praise and worship during which the teens can compose their own canticle of praise. Goal of This Night The goal of The Adventurer is for teens to learn about and experience Franciscan spirituality, highlighting the importance of community and encountering God through service to others. Catechism # 166 # 785 # 1102 Scripture Matthew 5:13 -16 Matthew 10:7 -13 Matthew 25:31 -46 Mark 10:17 -31 Key Concepts Our personal relationship with God is not meant to be kept private; rather, it is our unique expression and experience of a larger, communal reality. Franciscan spirituality emphasizes God’s presence in our daily life, in creation, and in every single person. Teens who gravitate to this spirituality likely enjoy more spontaneous, Spirit-filled prayer that results in action in the present moment. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
