Highlights from Greenbelt

I just got back from Greenbelt. What is Greenbelt? It's like a rock festival plus theologians! Which works for me. It's a place to see a lot of interesting thinkers and activists in mainline, liberal and radical Christianity. Plus different musicans, artists, and peformers of all types.

Here's some highlights with my bad photos.

Musical highlights:

Michael Franti

Beth Rowley

Speaker highlights:

Brian McLaren - good on postmodernism

Sara Miles - love her, love her, love her - it's people like her that make me want to be a Christian

I also enjoyed Nola Rae (mime artist), Jay Lakhani (on the Bhagavad Gita and Hinduism), John Bell, Peter Rollins and Hymns and Beer:

Where it's OK to sing hymns with theology you disagree with, because it is a pub, and you shouldn't always take things too seriously.
