As I have never been to to any previous Soulfest which touts itself as being the largest New England Christian music festival in existence, I do however intend on going this year. I have volunteered out of my desperate need to feel as though I am helping, ready and willing to do what I can and love with no abandon. When I sent in my volunteer application last week via e-mail, I received a response in my in-box a day later saying that I have been awarded the responsibility of peace keeping. Perfect. If there is one thing I do well, it’s peace-keep. I have been chief diplomat of a feisty family since I was 10 years old.
The festival features over 125 artists and speakers and I am familiar with nearly everyone of them. I have grown incredibly close to all things of faith over the last 15 month’s. Some of my favorites artists being Switchfoot, Jeremy Camp, TobyMac, Need to Breath and Peter Furler, etc…(Too many to list), I await my love-drenched duty with eager anticipation, anxious to ‘peacekeep’ better than anyone before me. It seems I have been waiting a thousand years for an opportunity to be with some of my favorite people. I only hope that I am received as well as I am willing to receive.
I am willing to leave the past behind and forgive and forget to the best of my ability. I am willing to love unconditionally. Ready to form healthy friendships, and alliance myself with the good as to oppose and neutralize forces of the opposite nature. I am Ready to get the show on the road. Ready to accept my destiny, and fulfill it to the best of my ability. Ready to live life and not be a victim of it. I am ready.
Will I be accepted by those who claim to love the God I love, who’s grace we are under that saves us from ourselves? Will I be accepted by those who may feel as though they are better than the rest for their righteous behaviour, of which there are none. Those whom are quick to judge thy neighbor who may have less and seem a little different, or a-lot different. Will they love………Me?
This time I may end up actually doing some writing…..
