On Saturday, I’m going to a music festival near Edinburgh. A Christian music festival no less, called Frenzy.
I’ve been to Glastonbury and T in the Park before, but never to a Christian one. The thought of it would normally make me cringe, but I’ve been assured that Frenzy is very good and there’s a pile of folk from both my old and new churches going.
So at the very least it will be nice to catch up with people and broaden my experiences – and you never know, I might even surprise myself and have fun!
However, should it prove in any way dull, cheesy or generally sub-fun, I’ve decided – with your help – to come up with 101 Things To Do at a Christian Music Festival. And if I don’t get to try any of them out, I’ll just give them a go in church on Sunday instead.
Here’s some for starters…
- Pretend to be a Mormon.
- Shout “Get behind me, Satan!!” at random strangers.
- Hand out leaflets trying to poach people to your denomination. Offer sweets if necessary.
- Ask random people if they want to buy some hard drugs.
- Ask random people if they want to sell some hard drugs.
- Hold up big banners during sets condemning live music as the devil’s work.
- Heckle bands with in-depth theological questions from the Old Testament.
- Set up a lottery ticket stall.
- Open a free bar.
- Take a guitar, and wander around singing “Imagine” by John Lennon.
- Walk around with a bottle of water offering to baptise people.
- Complain to the stewards that you haven’t felt the power of the Holy Spirit, and you want your money back.
- Hold up hymn board numbers at the end of each song a band does, giving ratings up to 6.0.
Please do add your own ideas and continue the list! Let’s see if we can get to 101…
