GREETINGS

It’s October.  Time for reflection on the old year and anticipation of the new year.  Also time to remember those who have moved on to the next life, and to let them go.

OCTOBER OPEN FULL MOON

The October OFM is about traveling through the veil when the barrier between the worlds is thinnest. Manea is leading this ritual sharing in her solitary path. Come with an open mind and heart and the harvest of the spirit will be fruitful.

THANKS AND A TIP OF THE HAT

For July:

Manea and Annabel presented a lovely fable about communication within a community.  Thank you ladies for your presentation.

For August:

Alia and I and the rest of the Community greeted the newest and youngest additions to our community: Sydney Rose and Sophie Blue Foureste, and Frankie Joe Rodriguez Scinto, in an extremely light-hearted and musical ritual.  Welcome to our community kids!

For September:

Due to an emergency, our presenter couldn’t be with us, so we held an impromptu “Church Social”, complete with drumming and harping.  All that was missing was the ice cream.  Maybe next time. We hope you enjoyed this as much as we did.

SUGGESTED DONATION

We have determined that our break-even point is about $4 per person.

We aren’t going to start collecting at the door, and no one will be turned away for not having a donation.  However, we would like to suggest a donation of 4 to 7 dollars per person.  (The extra is to cover the pagans that are unable to donate.)  If you can’t afford it, you are still welcome – if you can afford more, we’d be delighted to accept it.

NOTE:  Hearthstone is a church and your donations to Hearthstone are tax deductible.  If you would like to write a check so you can keep track of your donations, we can certainly handle that as well.

EARTH TEMPLE FOOD BANK

The Food Bank has been well taken care of lately.  We do not need anything at this time.  Thank you to all who have helped with their contributions.
