Well, my friends, you have a chance tomorrow to sign up for something truly special. I would love to see you there.
Hutchmoot 2013 registration begins at 12pm EST tomorrow, March 5. It’s important that you know what time zone it’s in (if you’re interested) because, well, it sold out in 7 minutes last year.
Why did it sell out so fast? Because….er, I don’t exactly know. Actually, I do know, but it’s hard to say. Read this by my friend David. Or this by my friend me. Or any of this, or this. Here’s a video giving a little flavor.
Anyway, come. It’s special.
Hutchmoot feels like an extended trailer for the Kingdom of God. It stirs up in me a longing for united community, for careful and passionate love of beauty, truth, and goodness. Mostly I am stirred up with longing for that Gardener King and his new creation, for that City coming down. The marriage of heaven and earth.
I have been to many events which felt like a fight –even a good, noble fight. But this feels like what good fights are for. This feels like the song and what the song is about. —Sam
And now, a few pictures.
I am making myself stop now, but really, please come. Don’t these pictures of us with people you don’t know make you interested? Oh well, all I can say is that the smiles are real. It’s special. Come.
