musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

that was Greenbelt 08...

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Had a great time at Greenbelt 08! Each year people ask 'what was the best thing about Greenbelt?' and, although I always manage to catch some great seminars/worship/discussions/bands (sometimes completely by accident), I have to say that the best thing about Greenbelt is... Greenbelt! Sounds corny but Greenbelt is just great; nothing makes it great apart from itself - the atmosphere, the environment of active exploration.

So no one thing stood out this year as 'the' thing that made Greenbelt for me, but I did enjoy Brian McLaren, Pete Rollins, Philip Yancey, the discussions in The Cooker and (though I know it's not everyone's cup of tea) the Beer 'n' Hymns in the Jesus Arms (organic beer tent which gets bigger every year!)

The Dream at Dawn service seemed to go well, as did the Spirited Exchanges seminars - below is a slide show of some piccies from the Dream service (flash required) - you can see them in full 'here'...
