Red Cups (But not the ones that have everyone talking.)
Hey Youth Ministry Nation,
There has been a lot of talk about red cups lately. So we thought we’d join the conversation and talk about a powerful book for your students that also happens to talk about red cups.
It’s called Are You a Red Cup Christian? by Lars Rood, and it’s all about helping students live a stand-out faith in a fit-in world. Fun Fact: The author, Lars Rood, also happens to be a youth leader and a Starbucks barista.
More About Are You a Red Cup Christian?
Picture the scene: You’re standing on a corner in a college town and see hundreds of students holding red cups. Like those red cups, the people blend in and all look the same. Everyone seems the same on the outside, and you’re unable to see anything on the inside.
In many ways, this scene represents the challenges you face as you move from high school into young adulthood. You may be going from a relatively sheltered environment to one of full freedom, and that transition can be difficult. Will you conform to the culture around you, or will you pursue a stand-out faith in this fit-in world?
Veteran youth worker Lars Rood is convinced that you can chart a course that will make your faith an essential part of your life. As you prepare for life after high school, you don’t have to be a red-cup Christian: someone who blends in and looks the same as the culture around you.
