1. The Weekend
Whether we like it or not, culture has defined the goal of the week is to find a way to get to Friday night as quick as we possibly can. In college, the weekend gets extended to four days anyway so you can replace Friday with Thursday. The reality is that students have caught onto this. Makes me wonder what our weekly service is in our student's lives.
2. The Party
Everything is a party. If you can have more people there and have it be "fun," you have yourself a good time. The desire for close community is not a high priority for preteens through senior high. At least not at the outset. Deeper relationships are for romantic relationships and need not apply to every day life. How do we turn the "party" into something that students can gain life from?
Interesting, if you look on the actual YouTube page, you'll notice there are 144,000 dislikes of the video. Just goes to show that while this video is catchy, and I would say that it tends to be somewhat accurate to the culture, it does not strike a cord with the majority of people who have seen it.
I'd be curious to see what a student thinks of the portrayal of their culture in the video. I think the results would be pretty interesting.
