eUpdate: Keeping Disciples Informed:
Dear Friends ~ ~ ~
”Post-Evangelical” is the way that nearly all of the presenters at the 2018 Wild Goose Festival described themselves. It was a jubilant gathering of more than 4,000 Christians witnessing to the love of God for all humanity through art, music, and story that is transformational. And will drive you to pursue justice with a vengeance.
Barbara Brown-Taylor reminded us that “there is a space of the sacred within us . . . a thin place that the Irish call another dimension – a 4th dimension – where you see but with new eyes. . . and we experience it on roof tops, in hospital beds, in the forests and mountains, kitchen tables, and coffee shops.” An allusion to Scripture, Brown-Taylor said, “is where you can see the ladder that climbs to heaven – even when the climb is filled and surrounded by darkness.” And then she delivered the transformational reflection that this is the thin place between addiction and recovery, gender on the birth certificate and the gender you know yourself to be, a race you learned to distrust and one you have come to know…”
Black Mountain, North Carolina is a stunningly beautiful place to be surrounded by as you listen to the likes of Barbara Brown Taylor, Ruby Sales, Brian McLaren, Tony Campolo, Doug Pagitt and hundreds of others. It was, in-and-of-itself an opportunity to experience one of those thin places, and a time to be with people who desired to experience that space of the sacred within our own selves. What I truly believe is the starting place for authentic, genuine relationships.
May your day today, and the week ahead, and months that lie before you be filled with thin spaces, and may you have the eyes to see, and ears to hear the sacredness within your own self.
With God’s Peace
