Against mediocrity. Against ungodliness. Against immaturity. Against rebellion! Here's where our family will this weekend- The Rebelution Conference! (Though, it's hard to believe our kids are old enough for "teen" conferences... :) If you've got teens/preteens I encourage you to check out the Rebelution site. What's a "rebelution?" From their site:
"The word 'rebelution' is a combination of the words "rebellion" and "revolution." So it carries a sense of an uprising against social norms. But in this case, it's not a rebellion against God-established authority, but against the low expectations of our society. It's a refusal to be defined by our ungodly, rebellious culture. Actually, we like to think of it as rebelling against rebellion. "
"And it's exciting, because the Rebelution has really become a type of counter-cultural youth movement among Christian young people from around the country, and even around the world, who are not only rejecting the lies and the corruption of media-saturated youth culture, but they're returning to biblical and historical levels of character and competence."
Alex and Brett Harris are awesome, truly leading by example and encouraging our youth to "rebel against low expectations" and "do hard things." Amen! I can't wait for our kids to hear what they (and their father, Gregg, whom we greatly admire) have to say.
I'll let you know what we learn. (And I do mean "we." Am I ever in "learning mode" at the moment!)
Have a blessed weekend!
