Possibly the world's first convention dedicated to a 6th century saint. It wasn't a retreat as there were too many musicians, theatre and mixed stuff for that. It all felt a little lighthearted for a conference despite there being some serious topics being discussed, so "convention" it is.

I'm not really a church goer these days, but that's more due to lack of options in Perth than lack of will on my part.

The lovely people on the link above "The Wild Goose is about liturgy and worship, music and song, prayer and politics, diversity and devotion, participation and perception, curiosity and creativity," have been doing fab things about worship for a long time now and inspire me to keep the last embers of my faith alive.

So the fest included theatre and talks about language and gaelic, Leonard Cohen, connections in the urban Glasgow environment with Columba's missions from centuries ago.Singleness and family in the 21c & church a workshop on deeper conversation and much more. I missed some of Saturday due to tiredness as I was commuting from Perth, but lovely to be with that

The workshop on conversation was full of thoughts about specifically making space for significant conversations and how different people enable that.

I'm tired but uplifted and reminded once again that community is at the heart of our human existance
