gb2.jpg I am SOOOOO looking forward to Greenbelt this year. Having reflected on the various conferences I find myself eating christian lasagne at, the events where I participate (or struggle to participate) in worship, the seminars where I debate with Youth Minesterial bretherin and sisterin, the VERY limited number of gigs I get to and the churches I find myself adrift in …… I have decided that Greenbelt is the most fulfilling and enriching thing I go to by far. It’s the event where worship, gigs, debate, church, faith and learning all combine and I feel at home, my faith and my soul part of something bigger. It’s a funny thing as Greenbelt is a massive bunch of imperfect people (I include myself) who don’t all agree BUT somehow it’s a taste of the kingdom that’s really real. There’s fun and faith, doubts and longings, hopes and dreams, creativity and dance, tears and laughter, a search for shalom, the mystery of Christ, the passion of the Spirit, the father heart of God …….. oh and the Tiny tea tent!
Interestingly I probably bump into more youth ministers I know at Greenbelt than anywhere else (Soul Survivor included) so I’m not the only one who finds it pivotal in terms of what events they commit to.
See you there 🙂
