In ancient times, during the dark days of winter, at the birth of spring, thru the abundance of summer and the harvest humankind has sought deeper meaning, entities to blame and allies for our journey. The mother, Goddess who gave birth and meaning to life, the father, God who worked the land and the people towards achievement. Throughout history meaning has been imagined and shared through ritual, legend and folklore. The stars and heavens held the truth. The pagan faith, the beliefs of our ancestors before organized religion “was a thing”, and is what our discussion this week is all about. Join the Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty as she meanders through traditional beliefs and and folklore that has endured in the face of persecution and orthodoxy.
