Well I have started my 3rd semester of nursing school, and I get the sense that It’s not going to be near as crazy stressful as last semester. However this does mean that my posts will be sporadic at best. I have not been idle over the summer however, when it comes to my studies in Druidry and working toward my Ordination. I spent the summer working hard on ADF’s Preliminary clergy training program. This has Included classes on Law regarding religious organizations, cosmology, liturgy, the structure of ADF, and Indo-European studies. I have finished them all except for Indo-European Mythology. I am currently doing the reading for this meaty topic. I had hoped and tried to finish the whole training before school started, but that just didn’t happen. I will now read and write as school allows, but school is my main priority.
After many years of looking I think I may have found an acceptable spot that Cottonwood River can use to hold rituals in a natural setting. A county park, that we can reserve that has a fire ring. It’s $50.00 for a day use. I am going to send in the paperwork today and we’ll see. The ritual will be on September 15th this year. I would have preferred the 22nd, however that is the date of our local Pagan Pride, and I did not want the two to clash. It is a small community of pagans after all, and they can’t be in two places at once. I asked for some input for a theme from the other members of the Protogrove, but didn’t get any response. There is always the old standby of a thanksgiving, but after years of that, I was hoping to see if there was some other similar but a little different we could use. I will keep tumbling it around in my head, maybe bounce it off a few others and see what ideas shake loose.
