begins at the end of this week - I can't quite believe how quickly it's come round (did I say that last year?) but I'm really looking forward to it again. This year there's a pretty good music line-up too with Athlete
heading the bill on Monday night. The new Greenbelt iPhone app has really helped in trying to work out which things I'm going to try to go to - I've got loads of stuff on my 'favourites' page, though I know realistically I won't get to half of it!!
I'm involved again with Dream
, only this year instead of hosting our own hour-long service, we're partnering with Grace
to run 'The Long Worship' in New Forms on the Monday from 10am to 6pm. It's an interactive multi-media worship space involving this...
The chances are that if you drop in early in the day, you'll want to come back later to see how things have moved on. Make sure you come along if you're at the festival - you won't regret it!!
I'm also co-leading two Spirited Exchanges
short (half-an-hour) seminars, both in G-Source...
Friday at 9:30pm - Faith:Beyond Certainty. 'Do you want to explore new and more life giving faith paradigms? What might these be and where might you find them? Malcolm Chamberlain and Jenny McIntosh of Spirited Exchanges UK look at what might help form the new faith mosaic to be more robust and integrated with all of life.'
Sunday at 7:30pm - Faith: Past its 'Use By' Date. 'Our faith journey has numerous dimensions. One is a time of questioning and faith unravelling. Beliefs and practices lose their meaning and cease to be life giving, bringing loss and confusion. Malcolm Chamberlain and Jenny McIntosh (Spirited Exchanges UK) explore the uncertainties and challenges of this difficult space.'
