  1. Wild Goose festival? I have a Jan Huss joke that’s hilarious, but I doubt anyone would get it.

    I’m a LOT more worried that Phyllis Tickle is getting props in the Herald than I am worried that Shane Claiborne spoke to some MB youth. Tickle is why the pastors are taking the kids to hear Claiborne.

    Oh, and interesting that the whole conference is run by a youth pastor. Phil Johnson was totally barking up the right tree on that one.
