Goodbye Relevant Magazine!
Today I received in the mail my final issue of Relevant Magazine. Boy am I glad. This once-decent mag that captured a glimpse into neo-pop Christian culture has now turned into a battle for the tackiest ad's by Christian universities and music festivals. There is always a try at "racy" articles that don't even intrigue me (like the Matis Yahu article). The worst part for me is the whole commercialization of "justice ministries" that is prevalent in Relevant. The ad I have posted here is an example of the true tackiness that "Relevant Christianity" has become. Thank goodness this is my last issue. I think Relevant tries too hard to present Christ followers as cool in their endless-who-cares articles and reviews of indie music artists. In my life I have tried to be cool, I'm just not, never will be. I think Relevant is no longer relevant, so stop trying to convince everyone that you are. Anyone agree? Disagree? Your comments are appreciated.
