God is hot, reports (secular) news show Editie NL, especially among young people. They feature 'youth churches', father Roderick's podcasting shows, religious fashion lines, and the annual EO Youth Day. An interesting item, though I would make two side-notes:
1. God may be hot, and there certainly is an increased interest in spirituality, but part of the God-trend is hype. It's often more about personal religious identity or taste than about radically following Jesus. I would love to see a bit more danger here, especially on the EO Youth Day.
2. God may be hot, but the church (or our concept of church) is still a limitation. The youth churches are already on the decline because it's mainly a come-to program for churched youth, not a place where non-Christians show up, and if they show up, they're not very interested to 'move on' to 'real church'. Church should become a go-to movement, but I assume this is too radical for most (youth) churches.
