Greenbelt Festival

I’ve worked out that this was the 27th time I’ve been to Greenbelt Festival. (Went for the first time in 1984, and had to miss 2), Would not miss it for the world.

This year was the last time that the Methodist Church sponsored a venue, shame really, it was good having a Methodist presence at Greenbelt.

I did try and reflect why I need to go to Greenbelt every year, and I think it is a “thin place”. Thin places occur in celtic spirituality, and they are talked about as places where heaven and earth are very close together. Heaven, or the kingdom seems a lot closer at Greenbelt. It feels like sanctuary, a safe place, a place of friends.

What’s more, there was some wonderful talks, and music.

The Proclaimers were amazing! Despite the Mud, and rain.Image

Bellowhead were the icing on the cake!
