This weekend The Rebelution is coming to the Minneapolis Convention Center. Chris, Evan & Nina are going to be there, serving and participating. If you've never heard of the Rebelution it here is the definition according to their website
"The official definition of the 'rebelution' is "a teenage rebellion against the low expectations of an ungodly culture." When you look around today, in terms of godly character and practical competence, our culture does not expect much of us young people. We are not only expected to do very little that is wise or good, but we're expected to do the opposite. Our media-saturated youth culture is constantly reinforcing lower and lower standards and expectations.
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."
If you have teens and live in the vicinity, this conference wold be well worth your time on Saturday (you can register at the door- Nina will be working with the registration team, Evan is in the bookstore - go figure).
