My Ten Favorite Things about Wild Goose West

My ten favorite things about Wild Goose West, in no particular order:

  1. The kids waddling and bumping around the fairgrounds wearing robot costumes made from cardboard boxes.
  2. Brian McLaren’s introduction to the work of French anthropologist Rene Girard.
  3. Being with friends from Silverton Friends ChurchThe Burnside Writers Collective, and Parish Collective; unexpectedly seeing Shelley Bowers, Lori Ventola, and Donny Kunzer; and meeting new friends from Gresham, Corvallis, and Denver.
  4. The multi-sensory, remixed Quaker worship service facilitated by Rebecca Joy Tucker and built around the themes of exile and return.
  5. Spending a weekend outdoors with Kate.
  6. Early mornings alone in prayer and worship guided by the fantastic book Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals.
  7. Rachel Held Evans’s funny and subversive talk on her new book, A Year of Biblical Womanhood.
  8. Peter Illyn’s introduction to the important work of Restoring Eden.
  9. Meeting and briefly talking with Richard Twiss.
  10. Returning home with enough inspirations, questions, ideas, and challenges to last me until at least next year.
