Burning Man is Just Days (and 2,945 miles) Away

DSC_5228Burning Man is happening in just a few days. Apparently, those in charge cannot imagine the event without me. I have passed on my tickets, but they keep sending me verification that my ticket will be waiting for me a Will Call when I get there. Oh my, don’t tempt me Burning Man peeps!

In honor of the fact that I get asked about Burning Man ever year at this time here are links to articles I have written about my experiences as a pastor going to Burning Man:

Finding Jesus at Burning Man (published in Christianity Today)
Thoughts from My Experience at Burning Man 2010.

Follow the links below for the whole series of devotionals on Burning Man’s Ten Principles, and how they apply to Gospel principles. I am often asked, how Christians can go to Burning Man, and sometimes I am asked to describe how Burning Man represents positive aspects of life and truth despite its overall hedonistic tenor. The devotionals below represent a radical missiology with a attempt to discover imago dei within the Burner culture.
Principle #1 – Radical Inclusion
Principle #2 – Gifting
Principle #3 – Decommodification
Principle #4 – Radical self-reliance
Principle #5 – Radical self-expression
Principle #6 – Communal Effort
Principle #7 – Civic Responsibility
Principle #8 – Leaving No Trace
Principle #9 – Participation
Principle #10 – Immediacy
