Some of my spirits are really insistent about their offerings, for example. And if someone came up to me and said that they wanted an offering they’d expressed disdain for before, I’d be doubtful. And I’d be defensive of my own practice. And I’d have to get past that if I ever wanted to function in a communal setting.
Both here and on it’s own separate page, I’m posting up a basic overview post for the Clarene. The Four Gods page will also be updated, to reflect our growing family of gods and the information we have about them.…
The issue of publishing within Paganism is a huge one. One that other writers more involved with it can probably cover better than me. I can only address it as an outsider, a consumer, a reader of these books. I can only comment on what I see.
There are some holy days that I think should be monthly and that I have written of before.
April 1st starts of with April Fool’s Day, a day full of enjoyable and obnoxious pranks, as well as a deal of hoaxes. The Otherfaith spirits the Flower Maidens are tied to this time, becoming especially active.
While I get adjusted to my new work schedule, posts will not be put up (from me). Hope to be writing again soon!

Technology is complicated. It can act as oppressor and resistance, often at the same time.
So, for this week, I want to suggest people contemplate what it means to *perform religion*. What does it mean to act religiously?
One thing I’ve noticed is that we have yet another Friday the 13th this month. I’m considering what role that date can have in the faith.

Happy Monday. Sorry for not getting last Wednesday’s post on initiatory orders up. That was for a variety of reasons. One – work means I didn’t have much time to write it!
Within the context of modern religions like the Otherfaith – in which everything we do would count as ‘UPG’ – the term is worse than useless.
Later this week, I’ll be closing out the month with a post on the initiatory orders of the gods. If you have any questions about these, please send them to me or comment on this post, and I will try to cover them in the Wednesday post.
I’m currently working on other simple prayers for the People. I need some help deciding which to use as our official ones.
