A "Christian Woodstock"
(Found this on the Touchstone blog)

What happens when you take Willow Creek, and blow it up, say 100,000 times bigger? And make it global while you're at it, rather than Mid-Western bourgeois.

Well you get "New Christianity" . A quote from the article:

"The only Vatican correspondent who noted the impact of this image on the world, John L. Allen of the National Catholic Reporter, put the problem this way: “Can a robust Catholic identity really be forged by mimicking the modes of expression of the larger culture? Or would the Church do better to foster its own distinctive speech, prayer and devotions?”"

Seems I'm not the only one asking this question.
