    Two little booklets
     
    I'm waiting on two little booklets in the post. One is rogue street artist Banksy's Existencilism, as recommended by Jonny and others who've seen his work close-up. The other, probably a tamer affair, but closer to my heart too - Thirty, the book which tells the story of Greenbelt from the very beginning. Forward-looking, ground-breaking, culture-shocking radical-edge Christians that we are, will we permit ourselves the cosiness of reminiscence as we pour over these pages and later in the month meet to celebrate the festival's very mature anniversary? Course we will.

    Banksy says, A wall is just as good a place to publish as anywhere else. Greenbelt has said, effectively, that a pig farm is just as good a place to do art as anywhere else. A country estate to do theology. A racecourse grandstand to pray.
