Open Circle, Charismatic, Evangelical Pagan Revival
With two Wiccanings, and a Handfasting
Join Blackberry Circle for an old fashioned, evangelical, charismatic, southern revival…
Think of Ray Steven’s “Mississippi Squirrel Revival,” except I heard there might be stuffed beavers there in the stead.
Dress your Sunday, go to Pagan worship best, and since this is the south, big hats are a must for you wimmin folk.
In addition to the “holly yew yas!” and the “Praise the god of your choice” revival, we will also be having a double Wiccanning of little Owen and little Madalyn as well as the handfasting of Keith and Lynette.
A potluck feast will be following the ritual(s), so bring something you would like to share with others.
Also, hopefully there may be some drumming afterward, so if you have a noise maker and the ability to make some semblance of music, bring that sucker along as well.
- Yourself (and anyone else you would like to corrupt)
- A sense of humour (humours will be for sale at the gate)
- Food to share at feast
- Dress your Sunday, Southern, go to Pagan meeting best
- A camp chair or other chair to rest your weary arse in
- More sense of humour
- And hell, go ahead and bring your kids, but if you don’t keep an eye on them they may be sacrificed (we’re joking folks, jeez!)
As a part of our public outreach and helping the community, each ritual will have a theme of sorts where we will collect for those in need within the general community.
