Altar States

I wanted to share my llamas altar. We had a wonderful time working with fire and bread though an unfortunate event during archery. The tip on the arrow broke. I felt it symbolic of all things that reach a pentacle. The tip breaks. Do you discard the stick or turn it into a wand!
Now to begin the falltivities! We will be working through “Circle Round” by Starhawk, Baker, and Hill, as a curriculum for “religion class” and “Celebrating the Great Mother” Johnson and Shaw. Though we practice daily earth living, I believe and educated child is open minded child less likely to be surprised by differences and prone to harsh or even light judgements that are unnecessary. The phrase “knowledge is power” is an understatement. We should assume knowledge is intent, feeling, and action then we have knowledge as power. Llamas with my family encouraged the methodology of the god energy to find its way into my expressions and in this manner we will examine paganism as an institution. Ha! Yes, I see the irony there. For parents seeking pagan homeschooling advice and practicum, gather “Pagan Homeschooling” by Kirstin Madden. Though a lot of suggestions are out dated (website shut down for example), she offers a guide to find the material by giving examples to squish into the search engine of your dreams! This book is simple and helpful! Thank you god for your seed of thought and firey passion to proceed though, myself, with the feet of Athena! May we be always in love.
