BELTANE

Sunday ~ May 5, 2019

Fort Wayne, Indiana 46805

Come outside and celebrate Beltane with us as we joyfully awaken to the blessings of Spring and the glorious "re-greening" of Mother Earth.  We begin to see signs of fertility in the fields and in our creative minds, bodies and souls. In celebration we will enjoy Maypole dancing, music, singing, flowers, gifts and inspiring ritual.  It is a day to embrace and honor the sun and its energy.  Like our ancestors we welcome the fairy folk returning from their winter home.  Magic abounds!

The wheel has turned and now we enthusiastically welcome the festival of abundance, warmth, activity and creativity.  Join us in our circle as we enrich our souls through sharing and ceremony on the longest day of the year.  Our colorful outdoor ritual honors the four elements and especially the sun, our Daystar, at the peak of its eternal power, with drumming, dancing and chanting.  Ancient Celts celebrated with hillside bonfires using the ashes as an offering to the crops.

Light and abundance to all!

LAMMAS


Friday ~ August 2, 2019

7 PM

Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren
2810 Beacon Street
Fort Wayne, Indiana 46805

Celebrating the first grain harvest of the year, our seeds and intentions planted earlier are now manifesting. Aware of the cycle of life as the grains, fruits and vegetables surrender in order to nourish us, the seeds will be reborn next Spring.  The Corn Dolly on our altar reminds us that the Corn Spirit will survive the Winter and reproduce.  Through ritual, we connect to one another, offer thanks to Gaia, celebrate the symbolic rhythms of nature and draw upon its power. 

After we walk the Labyrinth, pondering the seed's journey to harvest, we will nourish ourselves with homemade Lammas bread!
