Freakstock Festival 2009

We had a great time at Freakstock Festival, the yearly gathering of Jesus Freaks International. I have some photos on Flickr but here are a few quick moments on film.


This was the view out of our truck for the whole 3-4 days – people hanging out, talking, eating, praying, laughing. It was a really great time.


One of the bands packing up. Love the t-shirts here.


Al and Tina at our truck, along with Eric the hippie from California.


His grace Bishop Damian of the Coptic Orthodox Church had a good time. The Coptic Church bought this deserted army base a few years ago and offered it to the Jesus Freaks for their festival. They arrived 11 days early to paint and repair the facilities at their own cost – which I heard was very much appreciated.


Bishop Damian explained the Coptic cross to two of my daughters. 12 apostles, 4 evangelists, 3 . . . um . . . ooopps I forgot.


More activity outside our truck. Mirko, one of the original Jesus Freaks, is on the far left, making himself some coffee.


My friend Markus Leagel of 24/7 Prayer and his friend with some Lutheran nuns.


There they are with a Roman Catholic monk. What ecumenicists!!!!


Eric Schauer leading people in an old forgotten Michael Pritzl song. They are being photographed by . . . uh . . Michael Pritzl (of The Violet Burning) who probably recognized the song. Mustn’t have been too bad.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
