Acquire the Fire Night 1

We survived night 1 of Acquire the Fire! What a night. It was tremendously jam packed. I’m exhausted so all you get is some bulletpoints and a few pics! More info later:

  • Phil Joel leading worship is old school rock meets worship.
  • Someone at Bethany needs to be notified that this is a Youth Retreat so they can turn it up.
  • Joel Johnson spoke tonight with a good talk on wants vs. needs (something my father would be proud of since that was his mantra for about 15 years!)
  • The drama team is top notch! Really impressive.
  • Someone at Bethany needs to be trained on how to use a spot light.
  • First time seeing a half hour altar call in a loooooooooong time.
  • Everyday Sunday was fun.

What I just can’t shake unfortunately from the night was this quote:

All the statistics show that the more time people spend on the internet, the more lonely they become and the more depressed they become!

And I call a big SHENANIGANS. I’d like to see that study. Otherwise, cool night! Fun night. Looking forward to tomorrow.

    My thoughts exactly! ALL STATS say that?

    Conner track him down and find out. Seriously. If someone is going to get up there and say that they have to back that up.

    If you want more info on the studies, check out these links:

    It’s not rocket science to figure this one out. Just observing the kids at our school would indicate the same result that the study shows.

    Um…I’d have to disagree Wayne. I don’t think it’d be rocket science but I also think that it’s more than agreeing with the assumption that b/c people like to stay inside on the computer makes them depressed.
    Thanks for the links. The previous studies I’ve read have stated they’re “inconclusive.” I’ll check them out.

    I read this article fully on the topic of the resemblance of most up-to-date and preceding technologies, it’s amazing article.
