Fasting is one of the traditional Lenten practices. We often thinks of fasting in terms of food, but we fast in many different ways. Let’s think beyond food.
Welcome to The Grove
Penance is a big part of Lent. What is it about confession that makes us say, “EEWWW!”? Can confession be more than token, non-restorative penances? Can a guide through the wilderness help bring restoration and healing?
My Druid is Christ, the Son of God, Christ, Son of Mary, the Great Abbot, The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
I am a Druid follower of Jesu living in the hills of East Tennessee. Druidry and Christianity have joined hands since Christianity came to Ireland. Some speculate that many of the early Irish monks were Druids who had integrated Druid practices into Christianity, and it is said that the Druids knew about Christ long before Christianity took root in their lands. The Romans never made it into Ireland and Scotland, so early Irish Christianity was rooted in Irish culture instead of the culture and punitive justice of Rome. Among other things this included a sense of God present in creation, resulting in a deep reverence for the natural world.
Welcome to the grove! Here you’ll find Pagan and Christian prayers, poetry, and ritual as well as reflection on a wide range of topics. I hope you find something that speaks to you in some way. Stay as long as you like, and when you are ready, go in peace.
