Burnside Gets AroundLetters from the Editor — By Kim Gottschild on July 12, 2012 at 7:01 am
First, as many of you may have heard, the Wild Goose Festival is expanding! In addition to their Shakori Hills, NC festival, they will now hold Wild Goose West!
Where: Benton County, Oregon
When: August 31-September 2
Why: ”In adopting the image of the Wild Goose, we recognize that in the current climate of religious, social and political cynicism, embracing the creative and open nature of our faith is perhaps our greatest asset for re-building and strengthening our relationships with each other, with our enemies, with our stories, our texts, and the earth. In that spirit, in a festive setting, and in the context of meaningful, respectful, and sustained relationships, we invite you to create with us!”
