Last Minute Replacement

At last year’s Moonlady Winter SolstiCelebration, I invoked the element of Earth. This year I was planning to go as a spectator, but yesterday Amy Martin e-mailed and asked me to step in for someone who had dropped out at the last minute.

Instead of elemental invocations, this year Amy is doing geographical invocations with four people representing four parts of the world and ethnic groups. I’ll be representing the people of Europe (and more specifically, the British Isles). I’ve written a brief invocation, but I’ve got to learn a blessing in Gaelic. Fortunately, the ADF Druid website has some audio files of proper pronunciation.

I hope some of you can make it – it’s worth your time if you can.

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
