I have some panorama collage pics of it at http://www.mwild.org/photos/view_album.php?set_albumName=Greenbelt2004 . It was a pretty striking installation, the 100k jpgs I've put in the album don't really do it justice. sHy-Lo deserve a mention too - I have rarely seen the gospel proclaimed so energetically. Great range for a hiphop band.


Ok, can I ask a silly question? As one starting to learn how to creative emergent worship experiences for my students, I keep wondering what do you do with all the prayers and models people make when its all over? I feel bad throwing them away...


good question! i think people were invited to collect their piece of the city of peace at the end of the festival. but it would clearly be impossible to keep it all otherwise...

sadly, the models that weren't collected were throw away... a shame.
we thought about dressing up in godzilla suits and destroying it that way! humour, eh? sometimes the only way to deal with such sadness!


Destroying it all was really upsetting,it
didn't feel right. We took loads of photo's
and copied the comments and polaroids from the the comments board, so we have a good range
of documantation from the event, and some
people collected their things.

    where i come across creative ideas, liturgies, movies, music tracks, service outlines or anything that strikes me, i add them as worship tricks. i started these in april 2002 when i first began blogging and they have built up over the years so that i am now on the third series. this has proved a pretty popular feature of the blog.
