Our October meeting was held at Lake Julian. We had a children's circle ritual, wherein the Witchlings blessed an offering of bread with the powers of health and warmth, then fed the charmed food to the ducks. The grown-up's ritual was a drawing of tarot card fortunes for the new year.
A lot of education took place during the controversy and many ignorant people's misconceptions about us were dispelled!!! We will be lighting a candle in appreciation for the News media, (Dale Neal, Andy Reed, Barbara Blake, and the Editors of the Asheville Citizen Times, Ken Garfield and the editors of the Charlotte Observer, and Kathy Scott, Tracy Martin, and the producers of WLOS TV News will be blessed by name for their fair and accurate coverage, something we as one of the most misrepresented religions, don't take for granted.
Ginger and Shannon attended a "Students for Women's Awareness" meeting at Furman University, where Ginger had been invited to lecture and answer questions about the religion of Witchcraft.
Our November meeting/class/ritual will be held at Mysts of Avalon on Merrimon Avenue.
Our December 18th meeting will be held there as well. At our November 20th meeting we will be collecting the Yuletide decorating and gift-wrapping supplies that we will be donating to the needy young people of Eliada homes. We will be collecting canned food for the Manna Food Bank, at our December meeting. Please give generously, as usual!
