2018-2019 EDGE Night Series
This year we will be using Life Teen’s EDGE Night Series Existence. Existence dives into the very beginning of the Church’s teachings in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. To ensure that middle school youth get the fullness of the deposit of faith in a systematic manner, Life Teen has created an Edge Framework. This framework outlines the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church so that in three years middle school youth will cover and learn the basics of the Catholic Faith.
Existence is the first of the nine Semester Planning Guides of the Edge Framework. This year we will cover the Creed section of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Who is God? How did our world come to be? Why do we exist? Why is there evil in the world? What is the point of any of this?
Everything began from nothing. Everything was created by God who has always been and will always be. Our world is vast, intricate, and created by a loving God with a specific purpose and plan. Each and every one of us was created with a specific purpose and plan. God, who is three in one, is our divine designer, the unmoved mover, and, at the same time, our loving Father who desires nothing more than knowing us and being known by us.
Existence dives deep into the very beginning of everything. Starting with wonder and awe of the universe, the youth will be plunged into the depths of the love of God and the great truth that we were created out of the love of God and to love God. This year we will walk the youth through learning about who God is, the world He has created, and the creation of humanity. They will also tackle the tough reality of the fall of man and original sin as well as the ever timely question of why evil exists.
