Wednesday Festival: Reflecting on the BE

Ready for Eucharist, with the disco blaring just to the right.

It's Ash Wednesday, and as we set aside the season of celebration and fatness (pancakes, anyone?) we look back. Those just returned from the Big Event (4.0) have been doing some writing about it, and today's Festival shares those reflections. Enjoy!

A musical reflection from the Crimson Rambler, and a photo-one, too.

RevMibi reflects on re-entry, and refers to the BE in her sermon from Sunday, "Spring Break."

Jules' reflection shares her reactions to being in a large and ebullient group, as well as smaller, more intimate ones.

Holly, who is not (yet) a ring member, shared this reflection of the effect the experience on her life. "I laughed because these women are raw, and witty, and the rap music in the next room was so loud."

Songbird writes about the start of the event, and how it played out too.

I think there are perhaps some of us (like this editor) who have not had/taken time to unpack the experience into a blog post yet. If you do so in the next week or year or so, please share a link to that in the comments using this little html string: <a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a> For a complete how-to, click here.


  1. If only people could tell from the photo the ear-splitting, mind-numbing, dental-work-jarring disco music in the room, which after a while just had to make us laugh, it was so comically tragic. :D

  2. Maybe someday I'll join you all!
