What’s Coming Up at SPX Edge?

This Week at SPX Edge!

This week at Edge, we kicked off a unit about the Ten Commandments. We played a game where our volunteers were given silly commands to follow before the brief teaching taught the youth about the importance of boundaries and how the Ten Commandments actually give us more freedom. Then we played a game with no rules, discussed why it is important to have rules, and came back to play a game with rules given by Victoria!
Main Ideas: 
  • God gives us boundaries and guidelines in our lives, not to keep us from having fun, but to keep us safe, healthy, and happy.
  • The Ten Commandments act as a boundary that keeps us safe.
  • God’s rules are not there to ruin all the fun, but rather to protect us so we can live freely.
Catechism Reference:  “The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. The choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to ‘the slavery of sin.’” (CCC 1733)
Scripture Reference:  “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)
Family Reflection Questions: 
  • What are some rules that we have set in place for our family? Explain to the youth why those rules are in place and how they are there for their protection. 
  • What are some boundaries that we have in place as a family that you think are unfair? Why?
  • What are some boundaries in our Catholic faith that you do not understand?
  • How do God’s rules, and our family rules, help us to live better lives?
