I didn’t get to both days of the MyGen rally but I was really impressed with what I did see on Sunday. I took in a couple of breakout sessions Sunday afternoon the presenters were young adults, a couple of the 70 who volunteered to help out over the two days.
They were articulate, animated and used humour in their presentation and for the most part were able to hold the attention of their teen-age audiences, but teens being teens and a dance the night before and few were head nodding before each session was over. The atmosphere was really electric, it was like a two-day party with lots of laughs, The music from the Rally band kept everything light and the kids really seemed to enjoy themselves. We can be cynical about todays youth not being seen in church but they all seemed to participate enthusiastically in what I saw on Sunday. All of it was pretty positive.
