Before the world ends on December 21, 2012, I thought it might be a good idea to get a last few of the "1,000 things to do before I die" out of the way.
So here are the four "1,000 things to do before I die" that will be covered in the trip to Palenque:
1. Visit the Mayan Temples
2. Go to a Rainbow Gathering
3. Go Jungle Camping
4. Visit an apocalyptic hot-site on the anticipation moment with a bunch of believers in the event
Now, as in all things I do like this, it is not just fun and games. In fact, I always work my little-bit-larger-than-it-used-to-be pastor's bottom off during these events. I and my Burning Man buddy Jeff will be joining Cate Moon, Shlomy Goldman and a team from around the US to create God encounters at the Rainbow Gathering near Palenque.
Is this to say we don't believe in miracles? No. It is to say that miracles are often more illusive than the one time events on our calendar. They surprise us in the night, and sometimes attach themselves to spiritual disciplines in our daily planner.
So, in honor of helping people discover these simple truths, I am going missional adventuring once again. If you would like to help support this mission in some small way you can visit The Gathering website and donate to the Palenque, End of the World Encounter. The people of our world are running to places of excitement, and looking for guidance in events and moments such as this. Through these festival gatherings we are hoping to help the world one thought, one loving interaction, one encounter with Christ, and one crazy carnival at a time.
More posts on each of the four to six "1,000 things to do before I die" to come. Perhaps you would like to join a team of missional adventurers. If so, let me know.
