Welcome to Christian festival season. The time of year when Church buildings become empty, and fields become full of Christian Festivals taking place. With Christian festivals such as Edgefest, New Wine, Keswick, Greenbelt. and Creation Fest, there are plenty to choose from.
But what should you pack to a Christian Festival? What should you try and force into your suitcase? (If anything at all?) Here is the Church Sofa kit list of things to pack for a Christian Festival. (With affiliate links below)
Portable Battery Charger. You know… so you can keep your smart phone charged. Important as how else are you going to read the Bible? (Also helpful for sending tweets to @TheChurchSofa)
Bacon. Bacon is awesome. Be awesome.
Guitar. For leading early morning worship sessions.
Wine. Recently brought. Because what else would you drink?
Poverty, ecological devastation and oppressive systems are among some of the biggest issues facing America today. Reverend William Barber and Reverend Liz Theoharis believe that it’s time to address these issues with a uniting approach. They’ve traveled the country, following and guiding the Poor People’s Campaign: a wave of nonviolent civil disobedience first started by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Their aim? To shift the narrative around poverty and empower all.
