KindlingsFest is a celebration of art and ideas and where they intersect with the spiritual. This years Kindlings Fest on Orcas Island asked, "Can Crabbed age and youth live together?" Through film, talks, panel discussions, art, music and casual conversations we explored what it is that keeps generations apart and what can bring them together.
Dr. Jeff Keuss stepped into the conversation with a talk titled "The Great Divide," a look at the significant, unintimate space between the generations in faith communities. What is the future of faith communities? Is it a movement from vulnerability to intimacy, from accumulation to relinquishment, from information exchange to memory sharing, from choice to chosen-ness?
