WHAT A TRIP!
We’ve just come back from 5 days of mayhem, craziness, party, staying up all night and hard hard physical work! Yep we were invited to be part of the ELEMENTAL tent team with LOVE BRISTOL. We were a motley crew of people from all over the UK who love Jesus and want to see the Jesus stuff happen in one of the wildest festivals on these islands.
My FACEBOOK entry kind of puts it best – GLASTONBURY rocked! Dust, music, weirdness, costumes, Chai, fires, new age medley, party, music, more music, people, lots of amazing new friends, baaaad toilets, no shower, hot hot sunshine, Stevie Wonder, naked people, Elemental HQ, Spirit Readings, healings, staying up all night, and a whole lot of overflowing drunken glory spreading! Not sure if I’ll ever recover!
Our little venue was a creative hub of music, art, Future telling & dream interpretation, hair & feet washing, heated debate, healings, eating and hanging out talking into the wee hours. Open from 1pm we stayed open until 4 o’clock in the morning. It was busy hard work but full of bliss in the Holy Ghost.
Late night session with the Elemental Band
The People (or Punters as Glastonbury staff strangely call them!) came all day long. Many of them were overwhelmed at the prophetic words we shared for them telling their friends to come and get one too. Each day the Spirit of prophecy became sharper until on the final day it seemed we were pushing into new territory and getting a lot of detail. Makes you wonder how far God is going to take this! He’s more willing I think than we are.
I was hijacked by Holy Spirit a number of times and seemed to spend most of the event in a blissful state of intoxication. I really met Him there in power and it was precious. I got to pray for a lot of the Elemental team as they asked me questions about what I was experiencing. Several of them had God encounters and one of the team was drunk all day afterwards. It was humbling to see God moving like that. So sweet. His presence is everything to me. Some people thought I was a right weirdo. But hey who cares!
Wandering around Glastonbury it is like a mini world in its own right. It is massive with villages of different activities and music going on. Every type of random faith and practise is going on. There are healing fields, Teepees, Peace tents, debate, song, performance, circus, dance, raves, colour, song, food and clothes. Masses of people walk around dressed in wild costumes. Anything goes. Some people are even naked. It is an incredible place and I can’t believe I waited until my thirties to go and see it. It’s a massive hub of creativity, lovely people and deep hunger for God.
There’s so much more I could say but hey – for once I can truly say you had to have been there! Next year I think a whole bunch of us should go together. It is unforgettable and the experience sticks to you like glue!
Oh did I forget to say – Stevie Wonder rocked so did Faithless. Living it LARGE!
Catch ya soon, Justin
