Held annually, the Wild Goose Festival is said to be “focused on justice, spirituality, music and the arts… (and) rooted in the Christian tradition” and is popular among progressive Christians and many involved with the emerging church movement. It is the only Christian music festival in the U.S. that caters to “theological liberals”…
Wild Goose Fest 2017 also prominently featured Shack author William Paul Young and the contemplatives Richard Rohr, Phyllis Ticlke and Tony Campolo, along with new age speakers like Mirabai Starr, and others. Their website is here: http://wildgoosefestival.org/

The Wild Goose Festival is affiliated with the aberrant group “Convergence“. Convergence is the brain child of ultra-liberal emergent apostate Brian McLaren. McLaren, the author of “A New Kind of Christian” – led the ceremony for his son’s same-sex wedding in 2012. [see http://apprising.org/2012/09/24/brian-mclaren-leads-ceremony-at-sons-same-sex-wedding/].
The Convergence charter informs us: “We believe in Jesus and the good news of the reign, commonwealth, or ecosystem of God… We seek to honor, interpret, and apply the Bible in fresh and healing ways, aware of the damaging ways the Bible has been used in the past… We seek the common good, locally and globally, through churches of many diverse forms… We build inclusive partnerships across gaps between the powerful and vulnerable – including disparities based on wealth, gender, race and ethnic identity, education, religion, and sexuality …”
In an 2006 interview with Lief Hansen, McLaren stated: “The doctrine of hell basically says…At the end, God gets his way through coercion, violence, intimidation and domination – just like every other kingdom. The cross isn’t the center then – the cross is almost a distraction and false advertising for God.”
