The Most Beautiful Thing I've Seen
Lisa Gungor thought she knew her own story: small-town girl meets boy in college and they blissfully walk down the aisle into happily ever after. Their Christian faith was their lens and foundation for everything—their marriage, their music, their dreams for the future. But as their dreams began to come true, she began to wonder if her religion was really representative of the ‘good news’ she had been taught. She never expected the questions to lead as far as they did when her husband told her he no longer believed in God. The death of a friend, the unraveling of relationships and career, the loss of a worldview, and the birth of a baby girl with two heart defects all led Lisa to a tumultuous place; one of depression and despair. And it was there that her perspective on everything changed. The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Seen tells the story of what can happen when you dare to let go of what you think to be true; to shift the kaleidoscope and see new colors and dimension by way of broken pieces. Lisa’s eloquent, soul-stirring memoir brings you to a music stage before thousands of fans and a front porch where two people whisper words that scare them to the core. It is the story of how doubt can spark the beginning of deeper faith; how a baby born with a broken heart can bring love and healing to the hearts of many, and ultimately, how the hardest experience in life often ends up saving us.

Rooted In Belovedness: Jesus, MLK, and You
When counteracting the evils of this world we are subject to burnout, grief, and despair. We can also become dragons while slaying dragons if we succumb to anger and bitterness. When facing the backlash, discouragement, and disillusionment we often experience in the work of social justice, self-esteem is not enough, affirmation is not enough, a strong will is not enough to get us through, to keep us going, to keep us healthy. We must find our identities from higher and a deeper places. The paths of Jesus and King were filled with joy and suffering. The conditions for happiness were often absent. Like them, we must suffer and we must dig deeper for joy. Click here to keep up with the latest Goose News: http://wildgoosefestival.org/signup/

Giving Ourselves The Privilege of the Doubt
What does an encounter that lasted only a few moments have to say about the deep, invested manner that we engage each other's pain, even when that pain is historically predictable? In the Gospel narrative of Thomas, we find a demand for proof of pain from Christ that informs the same privilege we hold dear--choice, at any cost. But what is the literal human cost of our doubt in the presence of a pain and enduring suffering that has always been there, and who pays it? Xavier Ramey, a community activist, international public speaker, strategist, and poet guides an interactive discussion on the privilege of doubt, a country swirling in a self-obsession with using interrogation as a form of relationship rather than compassion and faith as a guide, and how we continue to use ineffective tools to correct historical wrongs such as racism, sexism, and homophobia.

Red Letter Christians feat. Tony Campolo
Click here to keep up with the latest Goose News: http://wildgoosefestival.org/signup/ In today's political environment, who speaks for whom is not always clear. Over the past couple of decades, evangelical Christians have tended to be associated with the religious right and the most conservative positions of the Republican Party. Rebelling against this designation are those who prefer to be called Red Letter Christians, desiring to live out the red letters of Jesus words in the New Testament. Believing that Jesus is neither a Republican nor a Democrat, Red Letter Christians want to jumpstart a religious movement that will transcend partisan politics and concentrate on issues such as fighting poverty, caring for the environment, advancing peace, promoting strong families, and supporting a consistent ethic of life, all viewed as critical moral and biblical values.
