Latest Festival Flyer update from Greenbelt
The word ‘Jubilee’ might spark visions of waving flags, sounds of cheering crowds, the smell of freshly baked street party cakes and the spectacle of pageantry. But its roots go much deeper.
In the Old Testament (take a breath, Greenbelt’s about to go all ‘bible study’) there’s this radical idea of the 50th year – the ‘Jubilee’ year – as a time to release and repair. To wipe the slate clean. To start again.
Growth can take us so far. But every so often it’s good to stop, redistribute and start again. This year – in our 50th year, our Jubilee year – we too want to take time to stop, rest, reflect, re-group and start again, together.
Get your tickets before midnight tomorrow (31 Jan) and spread the cost over 7 interest-free* monthly payments.
*We could get all biblical about the number 7 and the interest-free principle. But the idea of ‘Jubilee’ is quite enough for one day. And if you want to dig deeper with that, turn to Leviticus 25.
