Wildgoose Festival a Must for Justice pursing Christians and interfaith workers
Wildgoose Festival brings together practitioners of justice, artists, helping professionals, clergy, and interfaith activists. For those of us who’ve been asked to leave our traditional spiritual homes because of our pursuit of just practices, we’ve found healing and forged familial relationships. Settle down by the River, or Dance wildly by the Stage, or sit at the feet of Sages. This North Cackalacky mud is sacred. Come to where the Spirit, synchronicity, and substance commingle to revive and challenge us on to a better world.
