The Promise of Spring

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

Today marks the Vernal Equinox, the point of balance before the days become longer than the nights.  Many of us have been looking forward to spring, and this morning we’ll explore what teachings Ostara – the Pagan sabbat honoring the Goddess of fertility, renewal, and rebirth – might offer us as we move into warmer weather and the possibilities it brings as the pandemic lingers on.
