Amy and Jacqui and Barbara and John – it almost sounds like a chant, but a happy chant, on the road to Oz – and that’s just the beginning of the AMAZING 2018 Wild Goose festival lineup!
Haven’t bought your tickets yet? What are you waiting for? The Winter ticket special ($229 for festival admission + tent camping) will end soon. Do it now! Re-post, share, tell, send, spread the word – at the 2018 Wild Goose the mountains will ring with wisdom and even the trees will call us to the battle for justice – and we’ll have a lot of fun, too.
Amy Grant’s long and tremendously successful career is built on music that matters. From the time she burst on the scene as a fresh-faced teenager the Nashville native gained a reputation for creating potent songs that examined life’s complexities with an open heart and keen eye. She became the first artist in “Christian” music to have a platinum record and then she went on to become a crossover sensation, her musical gifts transcending genre boundaries to make her a household name. An “Amy” tour on the web points to song after song with hundreds of thousands and MILLIONS of views. http://amygrant.com/
Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis will challenge the Goose with her exuberant preaching style and her prophetic voice. The mere mention of her name creates a ripple of enthusiastic anticipation. The Senior Minister at Middle Collegiate Church, a 1000-member multiracial, welcoming, and inclusive congregation in New York City has been featured in media such as The Today Show, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The New Yorker, Essence and The Huffington Post and she’s is a frequent contributor to MSNBC.
This powerful activist, preacher, and fierce advocate for racial equality, economic justice, and LGBTQ equality is just right for Wild Goose-land! http://www.jacquijlewis.com/
Barbara Brown Taylor
Barbara Brown Taylor is a New York Times best-selling, award winning author, teacher, and Episcopal priest. What’s your favorite of her books – is it Leaving Church, or how about Learning to Walk in the Dark, perhaps When God Is Silent – maybe it’ll be Holy Envy (coming this year from HarperOne) – or any of her many others. Whatever your favorite, there’s a really good chance that Wild Goose people will play the popular “my favorite Barbara Brown Taylor book is . . . “ game a lot this year!
She was featured on the cover of TIME magazine and she’s been included on the annual TIME list of Most Influential People. Her work has been translated into five languages. http://www.barbarabrowntaylor.com/bio.htm
John Pavlovitz is reaching literally millions of people with his Stuff That Needs To Be Said blog. The writer and pastor and 20-year veteran in the trenches of local church ministry is committed to helping the Church become a more compassionate, loving environment for all people. His first book, A Bigger Table, was released last October to wide acclaim. It’s often said of someone that so-and-so will “tell it like it is” – for that to really be true a person has to know how it is and then have the courage to tell it. John Pavolvitz passes both standards with high marks. https://johnpavlovitz.com/
