Ostara, a Pagan Holiday. Yes, it is also Easter, but the sacred rites of the “common countryfolk” were coopted over the last millennia to legitimize a “state religion.” How can we dare to seek the truth, those of us who live within the cycle of the year, openly embracing the traditions, rituals, and teachings of our Goddesses and Gods? How can we bring our fertility rites (eggs, bunnies, and the maypole) out from under the shadow of Catholicism and Christianity? Join Rev. Marjorie and the congregation of the First Parish of Sudbury as we dare to understand the injustice that has been perpetuated throughout history to control the “heathens.” This will not be your “normal” Easter morning service.
