The Dance of the Maiden

Join us for this service via an on-line Zoom Meeting

Beltane is this week – a celebration of the Maiden aspect of the Triple Goddess, most commonly thought of as the festival of flowers, fire, fertility, sensuality, movement, and delight.  And, as is the case for Wheel of the Year celebrations, there are many, many variations.  This morning, we’ll hear stories of May Day traditions.

  • Safe Skies Clean Water is a local organization, started by one of our members, Tom Boswell. Its mission is to stop the harm that the basing of F-35 fighter jets at Truax Field, Madison will inflict. In addition, they work to stop the negligent pollution of our waters and force the clean-up of existing contamination of the water supply emanating from the base.  Donations will help pay for outreach and the printing of yard signs.
