Continuing the Traditions: The Challenge of Educating our Religious Community

We have chosen to follow a tradition which has survived thousands of years. We have been able to keep our faith and culture alive by adapting our ceremonies to our environments and ever changing times. We have taught our new initiates by passing down our traditions, in much the same way they were passed down to us by our elders. Yet, with each new generation, modifications are made, information is lost, and misinformation is put in its place. Modern conveniences such as books and the Internet have served as double edged swords. While facilitating communication, it has also served as a vehicle for erroneous and incomplete information. It has also eroded the very fabric of our religious community by replacing conversation with a keyboard.

 

In order for our religious traditions to continue to survive and flourish, perhaps we need to take a step backwards. Let us focus on educating ourselves, our new initiates,  and our religious community by following the traditions set by our elders and ancestors.

 

Join us as we begin the new discussions and re-commit to our traditions!
