"PRESENTE!" is an affirmation that people shout out in a gathering of persons committed to continuing a transformational movement. It signals that those present physically and those who have passed on are still spiritually alive, active, and present. Through these pandemic and political times of turmoil, we invite you to be present and to reflect on being people of faith in these challenging struggles.
Song and Story Fest is an intergenerational music and storytelling festival that has occurred annually for more than twenty years - like summer camp for the whole family. Come for the amazing concerts each night, for workshops and conversations, for arts and crafts, for kids telling jokes at campfire, for daily Scripture verses and theological reflection, for storytelling circles. . . and stay for the community that is built each year.
It's been a long time since we've been together in person. We're going to be Presente! in 2021 with the help of vaccines, outside eating, more dispersed sleeping arrangements. . . at least we'll be face to face!
Except for children, we're asking that all older teens and adults be vaccinated with at least one dose before the Fest. And bring your masks for when we are inside and close together. Otherwise, we expect a more or less normal Fest.
So, Come! Take some time to tell your pandemic stories, to remember and celebrate our journeys and those who have passed on. But we aren't finished yet! We'll continue to seek out the movement of God in our lives and in the wider world. At the Fest, through music and stories and community, we open ourselves to the holy so that our life and work and struggles move more in time with the energizing Spirit of Life.
Join us for this 25th annual gathering! Onward we go, together!
