Sunday morning, I will grab my motley hat, my ultilikilt, several of my rpg books, my Bible, my Nook, a six-pack of Magner’s cider and a cup of dirt from my yard. I will get in a car with people – some of whom I’ve only met face-to-face once or twice and some of whom I know only via Twitter, and we will drive to Stony Point, New York.
When we arrive, we will mingle for two days with about eighty other people to plot and scheme about the future of the Church, among other things … actually, you know what, I’ve never been there, so I’m gonna let some of my friends who know what they’re talking about:
“The basic ‘schedule’ is something like gather, eat together, worship together, hang out around a campfire, sing some, talk a lot, sleep a little, run or walk, eat together, pray together, share gifts and conversations, eat together, more sharing of ourselves and our gifts, open space to do or nap or be, cookout together, sing some more, hang out around a campfire some more, talk a lot more, sleep a little more or less, walk or run, eat together, pray together, break out from the larger group to smaller groups, worship together, eat one more time together or to go, scatter.” – MB McCandless, from her blog 1000 Thoughts per Second.

I’ll be in touch via Twitter and Facebook during the trip, as will most of the other attendees. Follow the #unco11 hashtag on Twitter or the UNCO page on Facebook.
