One of the themes of this blog is that in America
we’ve been lulled to sleep by alternative agendas, a set of expectations we’ve
come to view as “normal.” These expectations include tens of thousands of
dollars of school debt, a mortgage, and a career. It’s a path I was tempted to
embrace, and maybe you were, too.

Young people deserve better.

The church will never
become the world-changing agent it was intended to be until it properly
disciples and initiates its young people.

At the end of the day, we were all called to pass the
torch on to the next generation.

We were called to empower them and help them
stand on our shoulders.

They are bored and losing interest here in America.

They want to

do the stuff.
They want to be trusted.

If you’re one of these young people, I hope you don’t
give up and sell out. I really hope you follow Jesus’ radical call.

And if
you’re an older person in the process of passing the torch, I hope you’ve got a
strategy for doing so.

This is a precious stewardship. If you need help,

send
them to me
– we’ll put them in discipling relationships and help them to walk as
Jesus did. The World Race isn’t just another mission trip; it’s a
pilgrimage to destiny, it’s the initiation of radical Jesus-followers.

This is how
we begin to turn the tide and see a generation wake up to their destiny. And it’s actually working; they’re
getting it. Click on a picture to read some of their blogs.

    Hey Seth, just wanted to drop a quick line and tell you about a dream I had last night. Perhaps it’s prophetic! I came into a room full of my fellow world racers and we were sooo excited because we were on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, talking about giving up everything to serve God and other people. Cool huh? I don’t read Rolling Stone…but maybe they’ll give you a call soon. Have a great day, and keep encouraging everybody with your blogs!

  • awesome. cool dream, ashley. i pray that the Lord lifts up the name of his son thru the devotion of young people so that all nations can see his glory come on earth thru the church.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
