Hmmm… Rapid City high school teenagers that came out in force for this year’s See You at the Pole? ~16 students. You can view some of my thought from the day here. I was both inspired and set aback.
After that, read this article from Jonathan McKee. Be forewarned: this article doesn’t speak too kindly about See You at the Pole.
I think I most closely agree with this comment from Jon:
Something about SYATP had always bothered me. i had never sat down to figure it out, but i always thought it was that i didn’t like the actions of the people who really pushed it locally, the really “showy” “fluff” people. my whole ministry centers on the opposite, being REAL. ya’ll are just nailing it. thanks so much.
I might rethink how we are involved in this next year. How do you feel? Any thoughts?
