The Rebelution, Moving Forward

The Rebelutionary Cause
As we shared last month, we are currently "stationed" in the beautiful state of Alabama, doing some of the hardest things we've ever done. Last time we couldn't give you any details. Thankfully, now we can.

Brett and I are serving on staff as directors of grassroots operations for Justice Tom Parker's campaign for Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Besides our responsibilities to oversee volunteer efforts across Alabama, we've also been allowed to recruit fellow rebelutionaries into this historic political battle.

Colton Davie, friend, rebelutionary, and recipient of the Best Young Filmmaker Award at the 2005 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, heads up the campaign's "on the ground" video and photography division.

Über-rebelutionaries, Jake Smith and Alex King of StillThinking and Regenerate Our Culture, are the campaign's web designers. Our website is one the best campaign sites I've seen, and these two guys made it.

This campaign is unique, not only because of the godly character of the candidate, but also because of the likemindedness of the entire team to the message of The Rebelution. Our hope is that it will serve as a model for rebelutionary's involvement in the political arena.

A New Record
The period between our last post and this one marks the longest time between posts since The Rebelution's launch in August 2005.

Since the blog's launch we have interned at the Alabama Supreme Court for two months, traveled to Arlington, VA, for a week of campaign training, completed several large writing projects, and put on a teen conference in Sacramento, CA. Through it all, we found the time to keep the blog running smoothly. The lack of posts recently is a testimony to the amount of time and effort that is being directed into the campaign. We're doing our best to practice what we've talked about on here.

The Rebelution, Moving Forward

The Rebelution need not slow down. On the contrary, it is speeding up. The movement is already having a tangible effect on our culture through the work that is being done in Alabama, Regenerate Our Culture is cementing its position as a source for some of the best, most rebelutionary articles on the web, and the blogs linked on our sidebar are growing and turning out better and better content. It's exciting to watch what God is doing in our generation.

Here's how we'd like to keep that momentum going: The Rebelution is looking for guest writers. Whether you're a big-time blogger or author, just getting started (or don't blog at all), whether you're young or old -- we'd love to feature your work on our blog.

Thank you all for your prayers and support. May God bless you all!
