It’s HERE! Stories of the Wild Goose – July Synchroblog

6 Jul

The Wild Goose is a Celtic metaphor for the Holy Spirit. Last month, the first Wild Goose festival was held near Chapel Hill, NC. This festival is a North American arts, music, justice and spirituality festival. Inspired by Greenbelt in the UK, the festival hoped 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.

As of 11 p.m. EST 7/5/2011 we have 41 posts … what a way to ROCK 🙂

UPDATE 1 – 10 a.m. EST My internet is down. Grrrrrrrr. I do have limited and clumsy access via my iPad. So (for late comers) rest assured that you will be added in good time. I’m just slow this morning because I never got proficient on my iPad. So. New links coming soon-ish 🙂

UPDATE 2 – 5:30 p.m. EST Yay … I have internet again. And now we have 48 posts. Way to go everyone!! Lots of fun summer reading for all of us.

UPDATE 3 (FINAL) 7/7/2011 Noon EST – There are 51 discreet bloggers who wrote a total of 59 posts on the subject of the Wild Goose. And not all of them are about the festival, though many are.
