The Wild Goose is a Celtic metaphor for the Holy Spirit. In less than 24 hours, the first Wild Goose festival will be opening near Chapel Hill, NC. This festival is a North American arts, music, justice and spirituality festival debuting June 23-26, 2011! Inspired by Greenbelt in the UK, the festival hopes to provide a space to deepen growth for those who want to connect faith and justice, and provide inspiration and energy for fresh expressions of Christianity in today’s world.
For more information about the festival check out The Wild Goose blog.
The July synchroblog is an open invitation for stories, thoughts, experiences and impressions that emerge from The Wild Goose Festival.
Of course, we’re looking for lots of stories from those who participated in the Festival. But we want to hear from you whether you were there or not! We still want to hear your story of how the Wild Goose (holy spirit) has made herself known in your life. Or, another option might be to write on why you wish you’d gone to the festival yourself. As always, we are looking for as many perspectives as possible!
Please plan to submit your name, name of blog, title of post and link in the comment section of the July announcement on the Synchroblog blog by 6 p.m. EST 7/5/2011 if you would like to be included in this synchroblog. The list of participants will be compiled and posted on 7/6/2011.
