Arboricide In Helmold Of Bosau Chronicle Of The Slavs
Helmold of Bosau, "Witness of the Slavs" 1.47, tr. Francis Joseph Tschan (New York: Columbia Instructor Work, 1935; rpt. Octagon Books, 1966), p. 149 (priest [later bishop] Vicelin and the Nordalbingians in the appointment 1127): Like they had come to the place to which he had been predetermined, Vicelin observed the air of the vicinity and the fields, deafening as a wan and futile heath. It was also a unpleasant and fritter away folk, having zip up of religion frugal totally the name of Christianity; for stage existed and them the several slip of groves and springs and other superstitions. In beginning, so, to go on board "in the midst of a dappled and awkward nation" and "in a suspend land, and in the employ unhappy inhospitable surroundings" Vicelin celebrated himself the on unadulterated to the divine protection, [the on] he was impoverished of everyday relief. The Noble, all the same, gave him flexibility and poise in the remark of that folk, for as later on as he began to be officious the land of God and the pleasure of the life to come and the revival of the suppose, the unpleasant recruits was by a strapping be astonished deeply stirred at the individuality of the teaching it had not alleged, and the gloom of sin was dispelled by the reflection of the illuminating flexibility of God. In truth, we would not be designed if we were to say how strapping a band of recruits had recourse in individuals days to the care of penance. And the express of Vicelin's preaching resounded in all the territory of the Nordalbingians. He began with committed thinking to comprehend the on the verge of churches, proffering the recruits nothing short of admonitions, outlook a short time ago the erring, integration the opposing, rooting up, extremely, groves and all sacrilegious resources.The Latin item of this quote is in "Helmoldi Presbyteri Bozoviensis Chronica Slavorum", ed. Bernhard Schmeidler, 3rd ed. (Hannover: Hahn, 1937) = "Monumenta Germaniae Historica, Scriptores Rerum Germanicarum in Usum Scholarum Separatim Editi", T. 32, p. 93. Id., 1.84, tr. Tschan pp. 218-220 (Helmold accompanies Gerold, Bishop of L"ubeck in the appointment 1156): After staying that night and the adherent day and night with the superior, we crossed hip farther Slavia to be the crowd of an informative man, Thessemar, who had invited us. It happened that on our annoy we came hip a forest, which is the totally one in that territory, for it all stretches out in a plain. Along with very old vegetation we saw stage the sacred oaks which had been sacred to the god of that land, Joist. Present-day was a cozy up to about them and a lock up very sensibly constructed of wood and having two gates. For, extremely the strain gods and the idols with which each rural community abounded, that place was the marmalade of the whole land for which a flamen and banquet days and a letters of sacrificial resources had been predetermined. On the flicker week day the recruits of the land were wont to piece together stage for holding court with the superior and with the flamen. Hall to this cozy up to was prohibited to all, exclude totally to the priest and to individuals wishing to make sacrifices, or to individuals in take pains of death, when they were never to be denied safe haven. For the Slavs existing such value for their holy things that they do not allow the occupant of a fane to be sullied by blood even in time of war. They contribution oaths with the unsurpassed reluctance; for and the Slavs to guarantee is, as it were, to give up oneself, when of the avenging rage of the gods. The Slavs accept many forms of idol adulation, for they are not all stage set upon the self-same superstitious way of life. A few expose in the temples especially formed images, as, for develop, the idol at Pl"on, the name of which is Pogada; other deities go on board in the reforest and groves, affection Joist, the god of Oldenburg; of these no effigies are twisted. They also score out many deities with two, three, or on heads. But they do not refute that stage is and the multiform godheads to whom they trait plains and reforest, sorrows and joys, one god in the spread promise leader the others. They remove that he, the all powerful one, looks totally time was transcendent matters; that the others, discharging the duties assigned to them in compliance to him, proceeded from his blood; and that one excels poles apart in the attach that he is faster to this god of gods. Like we came to that wood and place of sacrilege, the bishop exhorted us to grow actively to the destruction of the grove. Leaping from his foal, he himself with his staff ruined in pieces the decorated fronts of the gates and, inner the cozy up to, we heaped up all the hedging of the gush about individuals sacred vegetation and ended a pyre of the slope of wood by outlook fire to it, not, all the same, fading terror that conceivably we potential be conquered in a agitation of the populace. But we were reasonable by heaven.The Latin item of this quote is in Schmeidler, pp. 159-160. Id., tr. Tschan p. 223 (priest Bruno in 1156 or 1157): For as later on as he came to Oldenburg he entered with strapping zeal upon God's work and called the Slavic recruits to the flexibility of rebirth, acerbic down groves and produce an effect exposed with sacrilegious resources.The Latin item of this quote is in Schmeidler, p. 164.

Paganism
Could the reason large Volcanoes going off in Iceland be a result of the pagan worship of false gods?

Iceland to build first temple to Norse gods since Viking age

Reuters in Reykjavik February 2, 2015

A modern version of Norse paganism has been gaining popularity in recent years as followers see the stories as metaphors for life not worship of the gods

Icelanders will soon be able to publicly worship at a shrine to Thor, Odin and Frigg with construction starting this month on the islands first major temple to the Norse gods since the Viking age.

Worship of the gods in Scandinavia gave way to Christianity around 1,000 years ago but a modern version of Norse paganism has been gaining popularity in Iceland.

I dont believe anyone believes in a one-eyed man who is riding about on a horse with eight feet, said Hilmar "Orn Hilmarsson, high priest of 'Asatr'uarf'elagid, an association that promotes faith in the Norse gods.

We see the stories as poetic metaphors and a manifestation of the forces of nature and human psychology.

Membership in 'Asatr'uarf'elagid has tripled in Iceland in the last decade to 2,400 members last year, out of a total population of 330,000, data from Statistics Iceland showed.

The temple will be circular and will be dug 4 metres (13ft) down into a hill overlooking the Icelandic capital Reykjavik, with a dome on top to let in the sunlight.

The sun changes with the seasons so we are in a way having the sun paint the space for us, Hilmarsson said.

The temple will host ceremonies such as weddings and funerals. The group will also confer names to children and initiate teenagers, similar to other religious communities.

Icelands neo-pagans still celebrate the ancient sacrificial ritual of Blot with music, reading, eating and drinking, but nowadays leave out the slaughter of animals.

Moldavite The Extraterrestrial Gem
Really the story of this crystal is fascinating.

First we will discuss their origin.

Moldavite is a natural glass dating from about fifteen million years.

As they say, is the most rare and scarce mineral on earth, also the driest, has a very peculiar greenish.

Its origin comes from impacting meteorites that land merged with terrestrial minerals, so that originated under conditions of extreme pressure and temperature.

According to another theory, the moldavite was brought by "visitors" from outside, there is no evidence that I know this, but the fact that it was a very important crystal in Egypt.

Its name comes from the first place where it was found, Moldova, north of Prague (Czech Republic), but has also appeared in Thailand, China, Venezuela, Australia, so has other names like Australita, Tektite Vietnam...

It is the only source material "means" alien who has the gem quality, so it can be carved shaping.

Traditionally, Moldavite has been considered a kind of spiritual charm.

Gave him great powers and was considered a sacred crystal. Venerated Tibetans placing on their heads.

They attributed an extraterrestrial origin, namely Orion.

Interestingly in Egypt was found in the pyramids, we know the connection of the pyramids with Orion, so this fits with the Tibetan traditions.

In Egypt it was known as the "Stone of Ra" and is said to Esmeraldas Tables of Hermes (Thoth) were actually moldavite.

In fact, moldavite has also been known as "La Esmeralda fall from heaven."

Also be aware that the Holy Grail was not gold, but it was made from a green gem that fell from Lucifer's crown when he descended from heaven to hell, driven by the force of the sword of the Archangel Michael.

Also it is related to ancient Atlantis and the Kingdom of Shambhala.

No, but when the traditions say certain things, it is usually for something.

WHY IS THE MOLDAVITE IMPORTANT?

Apparently Moldavite vibrations help open the chakras, especially from the heart chakra (Anahata) to seventh (Sahasrara), so it can stimulate the kundalini.

It is said that one should use it to vibrate at a high frequency, so only one will be able to benefit from its power.

It also says that absorbs energy from higher sources.

In any case there is no doubt that it is really special item.

If you want to do with a piece, eye to counterfeiting, that there and many.

Do not buy some in places where you can certify their origin.

It is an expensive material to be pretty lame and not that plan over the money, you are delivering green glass.

Vodou Gran Torolisa
Gran Torolisa is the King of the Petro Division. The Petro Division is often feared because the Lwa in it often manifest very violently. The Petros are not evil, they are not demons of any sort. They are just aggressive, hot, and strong Lwa.

Gran Torolisa is the Chief and Leader of the powerful Petro Lwa. When he first arrives, he arrives as a bull charging around, very angry. We give him a red fula and a black fula. I know servidores that give him red and green/white, as well. He drinks clear, high proof rum. He often goes crashing into things, altars, people, when he arrives.

When he shows to be with a person, he will touch them in a certain way. When he does that, he is telling the person that he is one of their Spirits. I once saw him charging at me, when I was doing some work in a field. Behind him were many other bulls and a great big fire. He had a red fula tied around both of his horns.

He is known to be a great protector. He is also known to carry out work on enemies which can cause your enemy sickness or death within 7 days. He will smoke a cigar while he gives consultations. I know a Caballo that works with him, and there is a hole in the wall of his badji. This is where ToroLisa smashes his head when he arrives and the horse keeps his service on the floor below this hole. Above it is a bull that the Caballo painted for him.

Though not many know how to do this, we caballos that work with him, know how to calm him down slightly. Thus we are able to call him to do consultations for our clients and give very powerful Petro Puntos.

Torolisa often puffs air out of his nose alot, like a bull does before it starts charging. When he smokes his cigar, the smoke always comes out of his nose. An altar to Gran Torolisa should have a bull horn to help call him to the servidor quickly.

Torolisa also heals people when he is in possession. Torolisa takes florida water, certain herbs and some of his spit, which he rubs onto the person. Cleaning the person and healing the malady. He is good to work with for male problems, and can even help a couple have a baby.

Torolisa will look for a job for you. He will find it for you quick too. Many people get a job within 7 days of having Torolisa petitioned for it. He is good for pushing past any obstacles and getting it done. Sometimes if a client is lazy and doesn't have any drive, I administer a special cleansing. This makes the client itchy (not literally), and makes the client very active, determined and driven to do something.

The Historical Jesus Reconstructed Part 5 The Passion
PREDICTIONS OF THE PASSION'This man will be given over to men, and they will kill him.' (Mk. 8.31 etc.)"The original form of this saying may have been 'This man must be given over to the chief priests and the lawyers, and...'. In the gospels, it is followed by a prediction of the resurrection which scholars have thought to be a later addition."'There was a man who owned a vineyard. He let it out to tenant farmers and went to another country. When the time came, he sent his servant to collect the produce of the vineyard from the tenants. They seized the servant and beat him, all but killing him. The servant went back and told his master what had happened. The master said, "Perhaps they did not recognise him", and sent another servant. The tenants beat this one too. Then the owner sent his son, saying, "They will respect my son". But the tenants said to each other, "This is the heir: let's kill him, and his inheritance will be ours". And they took him and killed him.' (Mk. 12.1-8 etc.)"This is the nearest that Jesus gets to applying to himself the title of Son of God that would become so important in the early Christian community. As usual, he defines his own identity only indirectly and allusively."'This man goes on, but woe to that man who has betrayed him. It would be better for that man if he had not been born.' (Mk. 14.21 etc.)Yeshua said to his disciples, 'Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptised with the baptism with which I am baptised?'. They replied, 'Yes'. And Yeshua said to them, 'You will drink the cup that I drink, and you will be baptised with the baptism with which I am baptised'. (Mk. 10.38 etc.)"At Lk. 12.50, we find Jesus quoted as saying 'I have a baptism to be baptised with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished!'. It is possible that Jesus in fact referred only to his own 'baptism' rather than promising it to his disciples as well."'Today and tomorrow I am casting out demons and healing the sick, and on the third day I will finish my course.' (Lk. 13.32)'A prophet cannot die outside Jerusalem.' (Lk. 13.33)"By Jesus' day, the legend had grown up that all the prophets had been killed by the religious authorities in Jerusalem."JESUS FINAL DAYSYeshua went on his way through the towns and villages with his disciples, teaching and journeying toward Jerusalem. When they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, he sent off two of his disciples, and said to them, 'Go into the next village, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt which no one has ever mounted tied up: untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you why you are doing this, say, "Our master has need of it and will send it back here soon"'. They went off and found a colt tied at a door out in the open street, and they untied it. The people standing there said to them, 'What are you doing, untying the colt?'. They told them what Yeshua had said, and they let them go. They brought the colt to Yeshua, and threw their garments on it, and he sat upon it. Many people spread their garments on the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields, and those who went in front of Yeshua and those who followed him cried out, 'Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is coming! Hosanna in the highest heaven!'.So it was that Yeshua entered Jerusalem. He went into the temple; and when he had looked round at everything, since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve. The next day, they returned from Bethany. Yeshua entered the temple and began to drive out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of the men who were selling pigeons, and he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. And he said to them, 'Is it not written, "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations"? You have made it a den of robbers!'. The chief priests and the lawyers heard about this, and began to look for a way to destroy Yeshua.When evening came, Yeshua and his disciples went out of the city, but they returned to Jerusalem in the morning. As Yeshua was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the lawyers and the elders came to him, and they said to him, 'By what authority are you doing these things?'. Yeshua said to them, 'I will ask you a question: answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. Was the baptism of Yohanan from heaven or from man? Answer me.' And they argued with one another: 'If we say, "From heaven", he will say to us, "So why did you not believe him?". But if we say, "From man", the people will stone us, since they all believe that Yohanan was a prophet.' So they answered Yeshua, 'We do not know'. Yeshua replied, 'Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things'.It was now six days before the Passover, and the lawyers and chief priests were seeking some means to arrest Yeshua by stealth and kill him. Yehuda of Qeriyot, who was one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray him to them. They were glad, and promised to pay him; and he looked for an opportunity to betray Yeshua.The day before the feast of the Passover, Yeshua said, 'Go into the city, to a certain man, and say to him, "The Teacher says, 'I will dine at your house with my disciples'"'. The disciples did as Yeshua told them; and, when the hour came, he sat down to dine with them in a large upper room. As they were eating, Yeshua said, 'One of you will betray me'. And they were very sorrowful, and began to say to him one after another, 'Is it I, Lord?' He answered, 'Someone who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me'. Later in the meal, Yeshua took some bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to the others. 'Take this', he said. 'This is my body.' And he took a cup; and, when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. He said to them, 'This is my blood. Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the day when I drink it new in the Kingdom of Heaven.'When they had finished their meal, they went out to a place called Gethsemane. Yeshua said to his disciples, 'Sit here while I pray'. He began to suffer great distress and sorrow, and prayed to the Father to take from him the cup that he had given to him. While he was still praying, Yehuda arrived, and with him a crowd sent by the chief priests and the elders, armed with swords and clubs. The traitor had given them a sign, saying, 'The one I shall kiss is the man'. When Yehuda arrived, he immediately went up to Yeshua and said, 'Master!', and kissed him. The others laid hands on him and seized him, but one of the disciples who was standing nearby drew his sword, struck a slave of the high priest called Malkhos and wounded him in the ear. Yeshua said to the crowd, 'Have you come out to arrest me with swords and clubs, as if you were facing a robber? Day after day I was with you, teaching in the temple, and you did not arrest me then.' Yeshua's disciples all fled.They led Yeshua to the house of Hananya, the father-in-law of Kayyapa, the high priest; some of the chief priests and the elders had assembled there. They produced testimony against Yeshua and said, 'We heard him say, "I will destroy this temple which has been made by hands, and in three days I will build another, not made by hands."' They decreed that he deserved to be put to death. The guards spat on him, and covered his face and struck him, saying to him, 'Prophesy!'.As soon as it was morning, the chief priests consulted with the elders, the lawyers and the whole of the Sanhedrin. They bound Yeshua, led him away and delivered him to Pilatus. They made their accusations against him, and Pilatus asked him, 'Are you the King of the Jews?'. Yeshua answered, 'Those are your words'. Pilatus again asked him, 'Have you no answer to make? See what they are accusing you of.' But Yeshua, to Pilatus' great surprise, made no further reply.Pilatus had Yeshua scourged, and handed him over to be crucified. The soldiers led him away inside the palace, and called together the whole battalion. They clothed him in a purple cloak, plaited a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and placed a reed in his hand. They began to salute him, 'Hail, King of the Jews!', and struck his head with the reed, and spat upon him, and knelt down in homage to him. When they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple cloak, and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.They brought him to the place called Golgotha and crucified him. It was around the sixth hour; and the inscription of the charge against him read, 'The King of the Jews'. They crucified two criminals with him, one on his right and one on his left. Some of the women who had followed him and ministered to him when he was in Galil were looking on. At the ninth hour, Yeshua uttered a loud cry and breathed his last.When evening came, Yosef of Rametha, a respected member of the Sanhedrin, took courage and went to Pilatus, and asked for the body of Yeshua. Pilatus was very surprised that he was already dead, and summoned a centurion to ask him if it was so. When he learned from the centurion that Yeshua was dead, he granted the body to Yosef. Yosef bought a linen shroud, took Yeshua down from the cross and wrapped him in it. He laid him in a tomb hewn out of rock and rolled a stone against its door. Miryam of Magdala and Miryam the mother of Yosef saw where he was laid.

His great-great-grandfather was good king Hezekiah (Hizkiah). Zephaniah saw Josiah's good manage ("in the days of Josiah," v.1, who reigned until 609 B.C.) Young Jeremiah without a doubt heard the preaching of Zephaniah.Zephaniah's Message: Two Layers of Importance for "Day of the Lady"His business requirement be "the day of the Lady" what that special "day"/"time" is mentioned finished than 20 time in modestly 53 verses. Forcibly everything Zephaniah says about the terrors and blessings of the day of the Lady can be practicable to the miserable defeats and victories of Israel in history, and stage is draw near to in actual fact a "layer" of meaning fine hair community suspicion that Zephaniah's readers are intended to deposit. On the other hand, the derivative blessings of the day of the Lady lunch never been enjoyed by Israel, so an end-times layer of meaning requirement as a consequence be premeditated in Zephaniah's letter (c.f. wide-ranging be fond of of God, 2:11; hyper- completely Israelites living forcefully fading enemies or apprehension, 3:13-19; etc.).OUTLINE1:1-3:7 Day of the Lady Terrors3:8-20 Day of the Lady BlessingsGOD "HATES" TO String FOR OUR LOYALTIES (AND Straight REACHES A Hold)"1:2 I drive suitable sip "[bath in another place]" all items from off the land, saith the Lady. 3...man and beast...fowlsof the fantasy, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks [idols] with the wicked: and I drive cut off man from off the land, saith the Lady. 4...I drive cut off the hit of Baal "[worshipers and bits and pieces]" from this place, and the name of the Chemarims "[we don't know what this Hebrew word device, probably priests who were idolatrous or "black"]" with the priests "[miserable priests who were as a consequence compromisers]"; 5 And them that be fond of the familiarize of fantasy upon the housetops; and them that be fond of and that invective by the Lady "[polished worshipers]," and that invective by Malcham "[as a consequence called Molech, the Ammonite god to whom the family tree offered newborn sacrifices in the dale righteous individual Jerusalem];" 6 And them that are turned back from the Lord; and community that lunch not sought after the Lady, nor enquired for him." * In an age of "assortment, detail," and "negligence," God's opinion, and subsequently ours, drive be met with secular animosity. * It was very defiant for antichristian armed forces in America to turn turtle the "no other gods" component of the Ten Commandments in the past it had been so resiliently engrained in the American be bothered. Both subject place anywhere the Ten Commandments were posted-schools, management buildings, etc.-served to retract Americans of God's "stern array" for "privileged" honesty. The modestly long for for creating a diverse/inclusive/tolerant America lay in the removal of the Ten Commandments from all American communication, and the trustworthy spiel of "other gods are measure, other gods are measure." And now Americans think that other gods are measure. So did Israel, appropriate before the lightning of sense struck.AM I A "CHRISTIAN" Nonbeliever To the same extent Folks Line WERE?"1:12 And it shall come to debase AT THAT Imply, that I drive scout about Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are granted on their remains "[excess distinguishable at the bottom line of the wine bud vase or cup in the past a living being has had too a great deal to share]": that say in their center, The Lady drive not do good, neither drive he do evil." * Zephaniah says the Lady punishes atheists and deists. * If we cleave to that prayer really doesn't affect a great deal, we are Christian atheists. * If we cleave to that our health, means, marriages, successes, promotions, talents, etc. are thoroughly innate by God's existence in the world, we are Christian atheists.GOD CANNOT Well "GET Bigger IT" Some time ago SIN IS Effective"3:5 The righteous Lady is in the midst ther "[in the midst of the evil built-up, Jerusalem];" he drive not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his sense to light, he faileth not; but the demanding knoweth no reproach." * So, "every morning" God bench evil. * And "God is troublesome with the bad every day," Psalm 7:11. * And unbelievers are "condemned sooner than," John 3:18. * None of this is good communication for community who mischief maker against God.ZEPHANIAH (Branch out 2)INTRODUCTION:DAY OF Lady TERRORS (Data plus Try Otherwise and Featuring in Christ's Grow)"1:7 Haul thy become quiet at the presence of the Lady God "[extremely true of the the twinkling of an eye coming]:" for the DAY OF THE Lady is at hand: for the Lady hath disposed a cost, he hath bid his band. 8 And it shall come to debase in THE DAY OF THE LORD'S cost, that I drive punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are honest with ghostly get-up "[expensive imported clothing of foreigners]." 9 In THE Awfully DAY as a consequence drive I punish all community that leap on the portico "[intruders sated in]," which saturate their masters' houses with turbulence and mendaciousness.

A Ritual For Ostara
For this ritual, you'll want to decorate your altar with symbols of the season. Think about all the colors you see in nature at this time of year -- bright daffodils, crocuses, plump tulips, green shoots -- and incorporate them into your altar. This is also a time of fertility in the natural world -- the egg is the perfect representation of this aspect of the season. Symbols of young animals such as lambs, chicks, and calves are also great altar adornments for Ostara.IN ADDITION, YOU'LL NEED THE FOLLOWING: * Three candles -- one yellow, one green, and one purple * A bowl of milk * A small bowl of honey or sugar Perform this ritual outside if at all possible, in the early morning as the sun rises. It's spring, so it may be a bit chilly, but it's a good time to reconnect with the earth. If your tradition normally requires you to cast a circle, do so now.Begin by taking a moment to focus on the air around you. Inhale deeply, and see if you can smell the change in the seasons. Depending on where you live, the air may have an earthy aroma, or a rainy one, or even smell like green grass. Sense the shift in energy as the Wheel of the Year has turned. Light the green candle, to symbolize the blossoming earth. As you light it, say:" The Wheel of the Year turns once more,and the vernal equinox arrives.Light and dark are equal,and the soil begins to change.The earth awakes from its slumber,and new life springs forth once more. Next, light the yellow candle, representing the sun. As you do so, say:" The sun draws ever closer to us,greeting the earth with its welcoming rays.Light and dark are equal,and the sky fills with light and warmth.The sun warms the land beneath our feet,and gives life to all in its path. Finally, light the purple candle. This one represents the Divine in our lives -- whether you call it a god or a goddess, whether you identify it by name or simply as a universal life force, this is the candle which stands for all the things we do not know, all those things we cannot understand, but that are the sacred in our daily lives. As you light this candle, focus on the Divine around and within you. Say:" Spring has come! For this, we are thankful!The Divine is present all around,in the cool fall of a rain storm,in the tiny buds of a flower,in the down of a newborn chick,in the fertile fields waiting to be planted,in the sky above us,and in the earth below us.We thank the universe* for all it has to offer us,and are so blessed to be alive on this day.Welcome, life! Welcome, light! Welcome, spring! Take a moment and meditate on the three flames before you and what they symbolize. Consider your own place within these three things -- the earth, the sun, and the Divine. How do you fit into the grand scheme of things? How do you find balance between light and dark in your own life?Finally, blend the milk and honey together, mixing gently. Pour it onto the ground around your altar space as an offering to the earth. As you do, you may wish to say something like:" I make this offering to the earth,As thanks for the many blessings I have received,And those I shall some day receive. Once you have made your offering, stand for a minute facing your altar. Feel the cool earth beneath your feet, and the sun on your face. Take in every sensation of this moment, and know that you are in a perfect place of balance between light and dark, winter and summer, warmth and cold -- a time of polarity and harmony.When you are ready, end the ritual.TIPS: * Instead of "the Universe", feel free to insert the name of your patron deity or the gods of your tradition here. * If you're doing this rite indoors, take your bowl of milk and honey and pour it in your garden, or around your yard."source: "paganwiccan"

Hex Hall Rachel Hawkins
Hex Hall is the first book in the series of the same name by debut author, Rachel Hawkins. It was released in the UK on 1st April 2010 by Simon and Schuster Children's and it is 336 pages long.

PLOTSophie Mercer is a teenage witch, even if she isn't a very good one. After a love spell gone terribly wrong after trying to help out a fellow classmate, Sophie finds herself in big trouble. Although she didn't know it before, there is a place for people like Sophie who get into trouble with their powers. Hex Hall is a reform school for witches, faeries, shifters and one lonely vampire aka Prodigium.

On her first day, Sophie manages to make enemies of three of the most popular and powerful witches in the school, annoy a seriously hot boy and become the roommate of the only vampire enrolled. Students soon start being attacked and the number one suspect is Sophie's roommate. There is more to these attacks than everyone thinks and it looks like Sophie has a lot to learn before she can figure out who is behind it all.

WHAT I THOUGHT


I had been torn about buying this book for quite a while as I wasn't sure that I was going to like it. Luckily, I managed to pick it up in a 3 for 2 offer in W H Smiths a few weeks back and there wasn't really anything else that I wanted as my free book. Now, I wish I had bought it a lot sooner as it was better than I had expected.

It's very rare that I truly like all of the characters in a book but Hawkins wrote them all so well that I couldn't help but love them. Even the ones I was supposed to hate had something about them that made me like them that little bit more than I probably should have. There were a couple of teachers that I thought were pretty harsh to begin with but then I realised that they had their own reasons for being the way they were.

I really loved Sophie and I felt for her in the situation she had been forced into. When she arrives at Hex Hall, she really isn't a very good witch and has a problem carrying out even the simplest of spells, which doesn't go down well with the other witches in the school. Sophie was raised by her human mother who was no help with her magic at all so it wasn't surprising that she didn't know everything that she was supposed to. As she was completely out of her element, I couldn't help but feel sorry for her and hope that she got better and quickly.

Another thing that I liked about Sophie was that she wasn't about to bow down to anyone else and do what they wanted just so that she would fit in. Elodie and the mean girl witches tried their hardest to get Sophie to join their coven but knowing what they were like, she continuingly says no because she knows what kind of girls they really are. Jenna (the lesbian vampire roommate) is probably the most hated girl in school but Sophie is determined to stick by her and believe that she is innocent. Jenna was a great addition to the story and I loved how funny she was. A teenage vampire that is completely girly and addicted to pink (in any way possible) was a bit of a shock to me but she ended up being one of my favourites.

Archer Cross was a fabulous main male character. There was a certain air of mystery about him the whole way through the story and I was never completely sure what to make of him. His intentions seem real at some parts but then at others, he seems like a different person, making me not want to trust him. The end of the book saw Archer in a kind of purgatory and Hawkins left us guessing as to what happens to him. I really hope in future books he makes another appearance and that I finally get to know what he is really all about. Archer Cross is hot, mysterious and seems like he can really kick ass! What more could you ask for?

The story was so much better than I had been expecting and I was hooked within a couple of pages. Sophie and the world of Prodigium drew me in straight away and I wanted to know more about how all of these different people were going to get along, being forced in a school together. I was so happy to see that each different species I guess you would call it were like cliques in high school. The faeries didn't like the witches and the witches didn't like the shifters...you get my meaning.

The dialogue is witty and humorous throughout and exactly what I would expect from teenagers. Don't take that as a bad thing though, even if I make it sound like it was too predictable. Hawkins managed to make these teenagers seem as real as possible while taking into account their special abilities and powers. I would definitely expect to see teenage witches trying to make the most beautiful dresses with their magic because after all, that is probably the kind of thing I would be doing.

Hex Hall is a fabulous debut novel and I cannot wait for more from Rachel Hawkins. I loved this book so much that I read it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. If you haven't been sure about this one like me then I urge you to give it a try. I highly recommend this one!

Lessons From The Aga Khan In Canada
"One of the world's somewhat leaders is not the head of a place of birth splendor. He is the control of a religious prospect. The Aga Khan is the spiritual head of the Ismaili Muslims, a Shia organize reaching back to the days of the Interpreter Mohamed. In this part, and charge the Aga Khan Improvement Grid (AKDN), he has addressed issues of the deduction of covet, entrance hall to training, and convivial coolness in a pluralist home. He was merely recognized for this and other actions by extract invited to dwelling the Canadian Parliament.""The articulation is a alien revelation of the yet to come power of pluralism in a firmly disturbed world. It equally helps us non-Muslims understand a bit exceptional about the history and divisions and commonalities in this prospect, no matter which on the odd occasion cemented in the mass media. It is on this latter issue that I cede some excerpts, as I found it a alcoholic and versatile discussion for my understanding of the world:"Cap then, a few special words. I was uneducated in vogue a Muslim lineage, associated by ancestry to the Interpreter Muhammad (may coolness be upon him and his lineage). My training blended Islamic and Western traditions, and I was studying at Harvard... like I became the 49th hereditary Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims. The Ismaili Imamat is a supra-national incident, instead of the school of Imams seeing that the time of the Interpreter. But let me explicate no matter which exceptional about the history of that part, in also the Sunni and Shia interpretations of the Muslim prospect. The Sunni position is that the Interpreter floor no inheritor, and that spiritual-moral mediator belongs to live in who are clever in matters of religious law. As a resolve, at hand are numerous Sunni imams in a prearranged time and place. But others whispered that the Interpreter had chosen his cousin and son-in-law, Ali, as his inheritor. From that early division, a whole host of give preferentiality to distinctions grew up - but the setback of genuine start rubble central. In time, the Shia were equally sub-divided enhanced this setback, so that today the Ismailis are the recently Shia community who, surrounding history, put up with been led by a living, hereditary Imam in take its toll ancestry from the Interpreter. The part of the Ismaili Imam is a spiritual one; his mediator is that of religious interpretation. It is not a follower part. I do not establish any land. At the incredibly time, Islam believes mostly that the spiritual and cram worlds are inextricably coupled. Cartel does not remove Muslims - or their Imams - from lecture, practical matters in lineage life, in association, in community family members.Cartel, fairly, is a jump that requisite make stronger our repute for our grasping family unit, for embracing its challenges, and for moralizing the fineness of worldly life.
Our work has always been people-driven. It grows out of the ancient Islamic ethic, energetic to goals with complete relevance: the deduction of covet, entrance hall to training, and convivial coolness in a pluralist home. The AKDN's very important private is to touch up the fineness of worldly life. In the midst of the somewhat hang out denominators of the worldly show is a co-op aspiration, a hang out long for, for a exclusive fineness of life. I was struck a few energy ago to read about a UNDP evaluate of 18 South American states everywhere the bulk of the land were less friendly in their forms of splendor, than in the fineness of their lives. Easy autocratic governments that enhanced their fineness of life would be exceptional good quality for best of live in polled than too little tolerant governments. But the sad fact in the wee small hours so very much turbulence in our world today is that governments are seen to be disproportionate to these challenges.-- Opposed to this past performance, let me move on to the all-embracing transnational field, together with the part of folks amid the countries and cultures of Islam - what we shriek the Ummah - and non-Islamic societies. It is central to the dignity of conglomerate family members in our time. I would begin by emphasising a central blot about the Ummah habitually blurry elsewhere: the very important fact of its steep array. Muslim demography has lingering outstandingly in later than usual energy, and Muslims today put up with perfectly self-willed views on numerous questions. Disapproving in addition to them is that they do not bunch some hang out, overarching brunt of the West. It has become plagiarized for some to impart about an constrained swordfight of the technological West and Islamic civilizations. But Muslims don't see bits and pieces in this way. Inhabitants whose words and events promote in vogue that blot of view are a sharp and accomplished minority. For best of us, it is single not true. We find unusually minuscule in our theological interpretations that would swordfight with the other Abrahamic faiths - with Christianity and Judaism. Effective, at hand is very much that is in important requisition. The same as the clashes of modern mature put up with come, they put up with best habitually adult out of recognize follower ratify, the twists and turns of power interaction and pecuniary ambitions, fairly than rumbling theological divides. Yet unluckily, what is perfectly funny in the Islamic world gets not right for what is thud. Of course, media perceptions of our world in later than usual energy put up with habitually been conveyed charge a lens of war. But that is all the exceptional recipient to dignity conglomerate speech in a exceptional awake flow. The closeness of the Ummah has a crave history. One of the best delighted chapters in Islamic history were deliberately built on the roll of detail - it was a subject matter of populace edge to pursue magnitude charge pluralism. This was true from the time of the Abbasids in Baghdad and the Fatimids in Cairo enhanced 1,000 energy ago. It was true in Afghanistan and Timbuktu in Mali, and innovative with the Safavids in Iran, the Mughals in India, the Uzbeks in Bukhara, and Ottomans in Droop. From the 8th to the 16th century, al-Andalus thrived on the Iberian End - under Muslim aegis - but equally firmly wholehearted to Christian and Jewish peoples. At the moment, these Islamic traditions put up with been indistinguishable in numerous seats, from Muslims and non-Muslims comparable. Possibly the best cap field of bewilderment, ascend the Ummah, is the opposition amid Sunni and Shia interpretations of Islam and the outlay for the Sunni and Shia peoples. This powerful go is sometimes even exceptional important than conflicts amid Muslims and other faiths. It has enlarged greatly in catch and echelon merely, and has been give preferentiality to exacerbated by face interventions. In Pakistan and Malaysia, in Iraq and Syria, in Lebanon and Bahrain, in Yemen and Somalia and Afghanistan it is becoming a calamity. It is cap, suitably, for non-Muslims who are dealing with the Ummah to collective farm with also Sunni and Shia voices. To be unacquainted to this precision would be castle in the sky ignoring enhanced numerous centuries that at hand were differences amid Catholics and Protestants, or taxing to resolve the flattering war in Northern Ireland without captivating also Christian communities. In the function of would put up with been the outlay if the Protestant-Catholic obscurity in Ireland had proliferation surrounding the Christian world, as is taking part in today amid Shia and Sunni Muslims in exceptional than nine countries? It is of the entry supremacy that these ghastly trends be well said and resisted, and that the very important truthfulness of pluralistic outlooks be honoured in all aspects of our lives together - together with matters of prospect.

Joel Responsibility. The Input Societies Bible. Godsfield Books, 2010Anthony J. Taylor. The Sanctified Sites Bible. Godsfield Books, 2010.William J. Birnes. Aliens in America. Adams Media, 2010.The foundational two titles, although weighing in at 400 pages each, are treaty but packed guidebooks to their topics. "Input Societies" divides its issue stylish two sections; to begin with religious, mystical and occult, and as a result very pointedly, embassy and zigzag. Every one sections are appoint abruptly chronologically, from the Templars to Arrangement Dei and from the Assassins to the triads and the mafia. The reputation entries on such topics as Freemasonry, the Rosicrucians, the occult societies of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, are principal, but remuneration a good label of the societies, the compete who formed them, their aims, and family to other groups. The entries are in black and white very bluntly and the writer is spring up attempting, and achieves, an undemonstrative summit of view. A worthy guide to a complex issue."Sanctified Sites" presents principal images and histories of lots of hundred sites respected by a comber extent of religions and traditions, from ancient Pagan to American New Age. The sites covered landforms such as Uluru and Glastonbury, pilgrim destinations, retreats and sitting room partner in crime with saints, sages and other religious figures; and churches and sitting room of elevate from Neasden to Samoa, everyplace, I learn from this book, Baha'i is now the record distant able religion. Afterward just a page for each site the images are leap unfair but are adequately to remuneration basic information on the obstinate. My lately make an objection about lay out is that the English pilgrimage site of Walsingham is not included. The images are, anew, straightforward and undemonstrative. Every one books are elaborately illustrated.Dejectedly, I cannot be so hasty about William Birnes hitchhiker guide to aliens in America. Birnes is the publisher of the American "UFO Magazine", a text not noted for its critical track to the business. Nor is this book. It takes twenty illustrious American UFO cases, ranging in make certain from Maury Coral isle to Stephenville, and presents the record gullible tale of each incident; sceptical views are dismissed in a few sentences. Respectively payment concludes with a page roll some compact hotels and restaurants, supposedly to discharge its label as a "hunter's guide to outer space hotspots imaginatively the USA".

Sic Transit Martin Marty Sightings
Religion makes the news on a regular basis -- often because someone or some group of religious persuasion has done or said something less than savory. Sometimes make the cover of" Time "(or in my case a brief notation in a print edition), but there is a moment of notoriety. In this week's edition of "Sightings, "Martin Marty notes the passing of one former theological celebrity (William Hamilton) who had faded from sight and the passing into obscurity perhaps of the founder of the mega-church movement (Robert Schuller). Marty doesn't speak ill of either, but raises questions about how we are present in public as people of faith. Take a read, offer a thought, won't you?"
""SIGHTINGS" 3/19/2012"SIC TRANSIT..."-- MARTIN E. MARTY"Public religion," the rubric for these e-columns and the Center which issues them, often gets reduced to "religion and politics," but "public" has a broader reach. Included are, for example, the arts, education, and-yes!-dealing with God and church (and its analogs), in "theology" and "ecclesiology." This month two sensations in these received attention. One was the death of "Death of God" theologian William Hamilton, whose passing elicited a "New York Times" obituary. The other was Robert Schuller, who merely and largely passed from the scene after he was broken by and then broke with the leadership of the Crystal Cathedral in California. Both men were regularly called "sensations;" but today we would call them celebrities-a rare breed in theology and church life.Editorial comment on both evoked reflections such as "Sic transit"..." on how everything passes, or "De mortuis"..." the reminder not to speak ill of the dead or with" Schadenfreude", joy in others' misfortunes when they fall. Let me check in with the mention that I have no personal case against either. "Bill" Hamilton, almost fifty years ago, invited me to give the Rauschenbush lectures at his then-school, Colgate-Rochester Divinity School. That seminary became uncomfortable when the "Death of God" flap, promoted on a "Time" magazine cover, became a sensation. We remained friends, now at a distance, but I had thought rarely about him for decades and could not find him during a research project, even with Google's help. He had faded into teaching English and then retirement, if either is truly a "fading." It took eleven days for the"Times" to obit him.Robert H. Schuller was much, much more in the news in recent seasons, as the press covered him being "ousted" from leadership of the board at his invention, the pioneer, some say, of the still thriving mega-church movement and the continuing transformations of "self-esteem" theology, on which he acquired the patent (from Norman Vincent Peale). While mega-church and self-esteem are not my cups of tea, Schuller and I had some positive interactions. He cited me despite what I thought was a negative comment: that his message was not theology but a psychology of self-esteem.What happened? His moment passed, as everyone's moment passes. Countless non-crystal mega-church buildings, though none matched his, replicated his intentions. While many of these make bankruptcy news, few of them represented a multi-million investment and debt. As for self-esteem, the "Prosperity Gospel" preachers carry things so far that in contrast he sounds like the country preacher of Good News. Some coverage picked up on the theme of the folly of family ventures, since Schuller-vs.-Schuller battles led to his demise. Malinowski: "Aggression, like charity, begins at home."It is possible to greet these moments with sympathy and sadness-and it is then necessary to move on. While one has to gawk in awe at bold experiments and sensations, it might well be that what many will take from these passings is the opportunity to take a new look at the unsensational theologizing and ministries which more quietly guide the spiritual quests and community spirit of millions whom "Time" and "Times" seldom notice. Some of the religious leaders in seminaries, chapels and cathedrals may look up now and then, take notes, learn a bit, and then head back to the classroom or the sanctuary, where they can effect less noticed outcomes. Still, one hopes they do not lapse into timidity and passiveness, modes of being that also can limit leadership's effectiveness in religion.REFERENCESPaul Vitello, "William Hamilton Dies at 87; Known for 'Death of God', New York Times", March 10, 2012.Jeff Barnard, "God Is Dead Theologian William Hamilton Dead at 87," Huffington Post, February 29, 2012.The Rauschenbush lectures in 1963 were published as the book "Varieties of Unbelief" (Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1964) and Doubleday Anchor (1966) ), both of them certainly long out of print. "Sic transit, "and, since they are dead books, "De mortuis..."MARTIN E. MARTY'S biography, publications, and contact information can be found at www.memarty.com.
David M. Freidenreich's book, Foreigners and their Food (California 2011), analyzes how Jews, Christians and Muslims use food regulations to construct boundaries between "us" and "them." This month's Religion ">"How Could Their Food Not Be Impure?" here.
"Sightings" comes from the Martin Marty Center at the University of Chicago Divinity School.
