today i had a day of meetings (most of which were of course at the scooter cafe)...
it was great to finally meet bryce and fellow traveller from fusefactory, who create soundscapes and VJ in clubs and festivals across europe. we talked about them playing/mixing/performing at greenbelt this year. it's by no means in the bag but they are keen and we are keen so it'll probably happen which would be great. the alt worship venue new forms has had plenty of visual projections and so on but it's time there was some more of that spilling out across the festival... was also good to catch up with shannon.
in the morning i met chris and kerry (i think) who are training to be episcopal priests in the US and are over trying to learn about what's happening in mission, emerging church, alternative worship and all that. it's encouraging to meet young episcopalians with a vision for that. so we chatted about fresh expressions, mission shaped church, alt worship, ReSource and so on. i was chatting with paul (a friend at cms) and i had a similar conversation with karen ward a while back - maybe it would be worth a small get together of episcoplians into this stuff with a few brits?... and paul suggested it should be somewhere else in the world.
then this afternoon i met with jim curran who has taken over the role as secretary of the GFE - this is a partnership group that has done some really good stuff over the last few years, especially with support for rejesus and initiatives in mission and spirituality .
