There are many movements and web sensations for every cause in and out of the book. Every one wants to be different, and in doing so most have become the same. Like a trend. Most start by wanting to be different, unique, noticed. Just like a bumper sticker I saw lately, saying "Just remember you are unique... just like everyone else." New or individual does not always mean special.
Being a homeschooled Christian teen girl, who is very much in the world but trying not to be of it, I observe some very sobering things in the church. Especially for youth, who are wrapped in the mindset of the world, which is groaning under the weight of it's sin. It makes me very sad, and in my love first for God, then for those after His own heart, I feel a responsibility to call my brothers and sisters together to grow and worship together.
What's different about this?:
Unlike pop sensations like the WallStreeters, this is not about simply making a statement to make a statement because you don't like whats going on, and then attach a statistic. If asked pointedly, most every activism of that kind will not know exactly why he is protesting except that clever chant somebody made up. "Kick the System [un]Conformed, Romans 12:2" is about separating ourselves not for our own sake, but for Christ's, from all that does not honor Him. This is something that lasts for eternity. Not even worthy causes like preserving nature and rescuing abused animals can compare.
Who is part of it?:
Really, any one who has given his/her life to Christ is redeemed from the world's destruction is called to conform Himself to Jesus. It is a joyful movement that has been going on since God opened access to Himself through His Son! And any one can join. See how here, under "The Wordless Book".

This is really something new I'm starting up to call the Youth of God in America (and all over, really) back to whole-hearted service of God's heart. That passionate, fulfilling relationship His children were always meant to have.
I'm working on a Blog spot, and more articles and links and such. When I get more info for you, I'll most definitely let you know!
For now, please, please, please comment with questions, ideas, controversy, and support. Right now I just need a "base camp".
"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
