    A Year of Living Generously
    This is one of the reasons Greenbelt
    is different from all other events: principled but not dull, committed but not prescriptive, creative and empowering (like that youth work philosophy from years ago, forming creators not consumers).

    They're inviting punters to get together this Sunday to generate A Year of Living Generously - a gathering for people who want "to explore together, ways of changing the way they live - small ways, big ways," and asking how, together, they "might translate this disparate activity into some sort of generous community in the coming year."

    A year of living generously. The possibility of "releasing a positive social virus into the atmosphere" in 2004/5. A potential "signal of a Christian community that stands for things - not against them". This is a festival's imagination gone mad. In a very, very good way.
