The last two months have been a whirlwind of travel, work, relationships and festivals. After working with Joshua Hanson from Kingdom Promotions, and helping dream of social justice art dealing with the injustices of the for profit prison system in the US, I was quickly off to the UK. I have now spent a week in Caernarfon, Wales, which most people who know me well know is my favorite place in the world, and then I followed that up with five festivals in a row.
So, at this point in the travels through the UK, I have been at HowTheLightGetsIn Philosophy Festival in Hay-on-Wye, Wales, The Hay Festival (in the same town), Burning Nest (a UK regional Burn in Devon), 3 Wishes Fairy Festival in Cornwall (over the water from Plymouth), and Stonehenge during the Winter Solstice.
Desanka has been a part of three of these events. Papy Fisher, Jake Humphrey, and Michael Buchanan were at HowTheLightGetsIn, Burning Nest, and Stonehenge. Jake joined me for the Fairy Festival as well. Along with Desanka, whose work in festivals is growing at an amazing rate, Vicar Diana Dingles Greenfield is doing amazing work in places Christians usually don’t hang out, because she does such a great job of contextualizing the Gospel in the wild and wonderful places most Christians avoid. Along with Papy and Diana, friends such as Andrew Thomas and Stephen Simmons are making God appearances at places like Hay-on-Wye as well.
Please pray for us, and for the momentum of the Gospel in the festival settings.
