Beltane Ritual & Potluck

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We are planning on having an outdoor ritual with a Maypole dance!  However, in case of rain everything will be moved indoors. We will gather at 4:00 to set up the Maypole and build the community altar. The ritual is scheduled to begin at 5:00pm sharp to be followed by a Potluck Feast in the Fellowship Hall.

      Sandy I had to go home to Iowa in May and put my 90 year old mother in a memory unit for dementia. Then my 91 year old father with chronic fatigue returned to Hinsdale with our family for a respite this summer. He has returned to Iowa and things are calming down so hopefully soon we will be back for your inspiring rituals. :)

      Actually, we've been kind of "on vacation" for the summer. Summer Solstice was spent at PSG and Lughnasadh weekend I was vending Tarot readings at the World of Faeries Festival.

    Looks like we're going to have a small turnout, so I think I'm going to have us focus on the purification of going through the Bail Fires and doing a blessing of the whole church property... labyrinth, gardens, building.
    That's going to replace doing a Maypole Dance.

      IDK if the kids would really be into that as much as a Maypole dance. I think we'll sit this one out.

      Just too cold and windy for the Maypole Dance.

    It was cold and windy. We didn't do a Maypole Dance afterall. But, we told the story of True Thomas and the Queen of Elfland. And, we made an offering to the Spirits of the Land as well as the Fairie Folk. We blessed the land and we blessed all the Mothers. We lit those balefires and boy oh boy did we appreciate the warmth!!!

    The singing echoed through the church fields. It was awesome! I also enjoyed the socialization of really nice people,and a wonderful pot luck.

    I'm still pondering what to bring for the feast. I talked to Della this morning and she said she's bringing meatballs in a crockpot.
