Notes & Transcripts

In the "Religion" section of our local newspaper, an article appeared titled "Youth Worship, 2.0." It described the worship activity of several youth churches in town, separate and apart from their "main" denominations. It described using rock music that really “gets them into it.” To enhance “hipness” and a casual atmosphere, one group had graphite covering the walls of where they meet and the ceiling painted black. At another assembly, Elvis Presley’s “Burning love” was played to "add a modem twist to things that happened long ago.” One of the ministers of these groups was quoted as saying, "Nobody wants to go to some big religious service.”
