You have been preparing all your life to lead a conversation on something – come prepared to engage that conversation but don’t stress on the preparation.
Last year the adventure course was again popular, ultimate frisbee was fun, conversations went deep, Lightning talks a highlight, where the wild things are alt worship was fantastic, Andy Goldsworthy styled reflection art walk was great, Uncle Vince was challenging and Pace Bene were provoking, John Smith was in good form for the dinner, craft and relaxing also went well.
‘lightning talks’ are back and are your 5minutes of fame to spark more conversations.
Past topics include reflections on liquid church, community work in, out and with the church, activist strategies, talisman actions, politics, disabilities and the church, Am I going to hell if I own a iphone and a ipad? …. to name a few.
So get thinking about what you can share.
Also, there will be a space set aside for participants to propaganda/promote their group, cause, next action, t-shirt, study, book…. you get the idea. (byo for your promo space)
If you are at a junction where you need to think and chat about your vocation and the direction of your life with active, prayerful and wise mentors and co-travelers … there will be a bunch at MPG to bounce ideas with.
If you are a family that is interested in connecting social justice and spirituality then this gathering has space for your needs. The site is well equipped for free play and organised chaos
