This edition of our Watery Wednesday feed features news from the Covenant of the Goddess; an update on the continuing legal battle over the Matreum of Cybele; a call for submissions to a new Pagan traditions anthology; and two stories on the drought in the American west.
Covenant of the Goddess (a national Wiccan organization) accomplished a lot at their yearly Merry Meet convention, including establishing an Award for Outstanding Service; honored military Pagans; established an educational committee to fight sexual abuse; and adopted a formal statement on environmental issues. Read all the press releases from Merry Meet for all the details.
In my view, one of the most comforting activities one can do after a loved one has passed through the veil is telling stories about the deceased.Stories tell us who we are, where we came from, what we might become.They are our primary teaching tools.
“We're all made of stories.When they finally put us underground, the stories are what will go on.Not forever, perhaps, but for a time.It’s a kind of immortality, I suppose, bounded by limits, it’s true, but then so’s everything.”
