One of the great things about the Wild Goose Festival is that it continues to inspire reflection and conversation long after the last tent is packed up. Many of you have shared your Wild Goose experience on your blogs, and they have been a delight to read. What a wonderful range of perspectives, transformative moments and insights! Below are excerpts from two blog posts, with links to the full post. Click the link at the bottom of this post for more #wildgoose14 blogs.
“When you’re in the muddy woods without internet or a real shower for four days together, hanging out with preachers, teachers, healers, theologians, families, singles, drag queens, folk singers, fireflies, children splashing in mud puddles, rockstars, and everyday awesome folk who care about the future of the planet and all who inhabit it … well, it’s pretty much a little taste of Heaven if you ask me.” – Wild Christianity at the Wild Goose Festival by Debra Arca, Patheos
“I looked up and into the faces of those in the circle that began forming near me and saw love. I saw Black, White, Native American, Asian and Latino. I saw tattoos, dreadlocks, up-dos, shaved heads, piercings, face paint, costumes and drag. I saw gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, allies, parents, children, teenagers, elders and young adults. I saw every shape, every size. I saw myself. I saw a work of art. I experienced the Wild Goose Festival.”
