Hi and welcome to another fabulous Wednesday festival. This is my first round up, and it is full of great stuff.
In my part of the world we have just celebrated The Fisher's Ghost Festival. This is our regions annual festival; some regions celebrate people, events or nature. We celebrate a dead man, Fred Fisher's, ghost.
So I thought I would throw a Wednesday Festival, ala Fisher's Ghost, with a street parade, stalls, a carnival and most importantly fireworks for you all to sit back and enjoy.
First we have an Indian themed Float from Good in Parts, reflecting on India's unique society, specifically the caste system and her experience reading the Times of India.
This is followed by a wonderful float filled with all the things we are thankful for.
Besomami shares a picture of her beautiful girl.
Lutheran Geek reflects on the freedom that comes with the quirky, wonderful, fabulous, families that know you best and love you most.
Jill has found her writing mojo again with a fantastic list of things to be thankful for, and the peace that comes with being still by Christmas lights.
Sally has been challenged about the depth of being Christian and is grateful for it. Sally is also celebrating the amazing achievements of her daughter at her graduation. Congratulations Emma!!
Sue at Inner Dorothy is thankful for Ordinary Time and for all those who have contributed.
This is by far the largest float in the parade!
Now I am seeing a fabulous float made up of a collection of sermons, firstly Sally's sermon, Christ is King, and also Pambg's sermon, Christ is King of Heaven and Earth.
This float concludes with a very entertaining hymn also from Pambg.
The next float is called Quest. It has a number of questions people would love an answer for.
Featherlessbiped is a RGBP newbie and is asking about accessibility and professional boundaries ie mobile phones. Drop around and say hi.
Deb asks the question, "What makes a good Sound Check?" (for me it's the Sesame Street counting song)
Pink Shoes is asking "What are you reading?"
And Reverend Mother asks about the giving of cards and Gift cards during this festive season.
Psaltery, Sue at Innerdorothy and Deb, are parading on the Christmas/Advent Music Meme float, don't forget to wave.
Deep South has her own multimedia float with beautiful images from the Deep South and the new Johnny Cash tribute video.
Our next float is called Ponderings. It is a wonderfully diverse mix of Snowflake's, David's last word's and God's presence from Milton, a fabulous read.
And an inner journey about the transition from Seminary back to the real world from Michelle.
And our final float in the parade today is Sally as she looks toward advent, with less tinsel and tea towels, and more angels and also looks at ways of warding off burnout.
Well that brings us to the end of our parade for the Wednesday Festival. Thank you to all those who have contributed, making a simply astounding street parade.
Please continue to nominate those wonderful blogs which are out there. Because although Fisher's Ghost only comes out once a year, the Wednesday Festival comes around every week!
