Dual Purpose-Interesting piece in the NY Post (via Christianity today) on a evangelical band who does secularized anti-violence concerts in public schools and while doing so puts in a plug for an unfettered evangelical outreach concert in town off campus that week. Of course, secular groups complained. A similar strategy is used by Reggie Dabbs, who has given a sufficiently secularized motivational speech in the public schools in my hometown of Midland, then holds a evangelical rally off campus at the Center for the Arts. Quite a few kids were brought to the Lord in those rallies; my sister helps lead the youth ministry at her church and can testify to the effects. A few leftists complained (often pastors of liberal churches whose kids might be influenced), but as long as the on-campus speeches were primarily secular, things were cool.
