meet in friendship

Jul 10, 2014

God-willing I will again this year make it to the Rimini Meeting for friendship among peoples. It is difficult to describe the gathering which annually draws around 700.000 visitors over a week in August each year. Simply, I would suggest that if a meeting were advertised to focus on church, religion, doctrine, faith, and salvation it would attract very small numbers. “The Meeting” as it is widely referred to in Italy is advertised to focus on friendship, encounter, truth, beauty, reality, experience etc and people from all over the world flock to take part in the experience.

This brief video clip gives a taste of the experience:
