An update on the Rebelution, Alex & Brett Harris

I saw this article online, just published this morning, and thought it might be of interest to my readers...

Alex & Brett Harris

"Do hard things," Alex and Brett Harris told their fellow teenagers six years ago. Get up early. Step out of your comfort zone. Do more than what’s required. Find a cause. Be faithful. Go against the crowd.

Be better than your culture expects.

Since then God has taken Alex and Brett, now 25, in starkly different directions that illustrate the Lord's mysterious plans and purposes as he calls us to forsake all and follow him.
