Wild Goose Festival, June 23-26 - I hope you'll come!
Having been in the UK the last week and met so many friends whom I originally got to know through Greenbelt, I'm all the more enthusiastic about Wild Goose, coming up in North Carolina in just over a month.
What's Greenbelt? It's a festival of faith, art, and justice, planned and led by a fascinating group of Christian leaders in the UK, held every August. (I'll be speaking/hanging out there this year.)
What's Wild Goose? It's a similar festival being planned by a similarly fascinating group of Christian leaders in the US. I'll be speaking/hanging out there as well.) You can find out more about it here:
I hope you'll consider being part of this first-ever Wild Goose Festival. It can play an important role in the emergence of a new Christian ethos in our land.
The Wild Goose is a Celtic metaphor for the Holy Spirit. We are followers of Jesus creating a festival of justice, spirituality, music and the arts. The festival is rooted in the Christian tradition and therefore open to all regardless of belief, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, denomination or religious affiliation.
In adopting the image of the Wild Goose we recognize that in the current climate of religious, social and political cynicism, embracing the creative and open nature of our faith is perhaps our greatest asset for re-building and strengthening our relationships with each other, with our enemies, with our stories, our texts, and the earth. In that spirit, in a festive setting, and in the context of meaningful, respectful, and sustained relationships, we invite you to create with us!
And yes, I'll be camping.
