Reporting on Wild Goose East 2012

Tom and I are back home after several wonderful days at the Wild Goose Festival in North Carolina. It was hot, humid and dusty but in spite of that we had a wonderful time. Tom was in fine form talking about intentional community and moving beyond the Western dream and I had fun speaking on reimagining how we pray.

More than anything we enjoyed meeting old friends and making new ones. Had lots of good discussions, shared lots about the Mustard Seed Village and Cascadia and just thoroughly enjoyed a relaxed but provokative festival.

I also loved the grievance wall and the opportunity for people to share their frustrations with life & faith

What I didn’t enjoy – having to check for ticks every day and came home covered in itchy bites.

  1. We really enjoyed seeing Tom speak and sorry we didn’t get a chance to chat with you this year (we loved your talk last year). We heard Dave Andrews for the first time (speaking on the beatitudes) and it was great. Already looking forward to Wild Goose 2013.

  2. Thanks Bill, Just enjoyed looking through your photos on facebook. Lots of good memories. Not sure that we will make it next year. North Carolina is a long way from Seattle
