To the left, you can see a picture from the inside of the arena of the line.
So, Winter Jam is a Christian concert that costs $10 at the door. You can pay more to have tickets before hand, but the majority of the people who attend wait in line for several hours and pay $10 at the door. Winter Jam has ten Christian artists perform. The concert was over five hours long! Isn't that an amazing deal?
Wondering what the interesting thing I observed was??
I don't know about you, but when I think about a group of Christians gathering, I imagine a group of pumped up kids ready to worship Jesus. I don't see people trying to cut people in line, devising plans to distract the Event Staff so they could break the line. I see clean conversations and everyone having fun.
Sadly, I saw little Christ-like behavior. There were people smoking in line, dropping their cigarette butts on the ground and cutting people in line. There was a lot of, "Oh, I'm with someone over there." and, "Yeah, I have a party of 32, so we should be up front."
It breaks my heart that the younger generation is losing sight on how to act like Christ. Where did this concept get lost? I am reading a great book that goes into detail about what is changing. Come back on Thursday for a post about why the younger generation doesn't know how to act like Christ.
What startles or worries you about the younger gerneation?
