Lumen Festival

Lumen is an outdoor event hosted by the Catholic Church of Slovakia. Last week we made our way into Trnava to catch the concerts. We saw a number of bands from Slovakia and the UK. In truth, we were really there to see the band Delirious. One line from a song grabbed us: “every soul needs a savior”. Admittedly, a basic truth. There we stood in the town square, which had been converted into an outdoor concert hall, surrounded by hundreds of people (side note: most of whom were sweaty / wet from rain and were rubbing against us….).

And then the moment took on a meaning of it’s own. 11:00pm – sound system booming – Delirious singing – hundreds of people filling the center of town – all declaring our need for a savior. Interesting how the most simple truths are the most powerful
