A message to the festival from Walter Brueggemann

"We preachers have an opportunity to declare that there is another narrative out of which we can live our lives. It is a narrative of generosity, and freedom, and forgiveness, and hospitality, and justice. It is the narrative of the future, and I am very glad that we share it."
