A home for alternative spirituality
A longstanding tradition, the Patron Pageant is a fundraiser and charity event which is used to elect our patron god or goddess for the year. This patron will watch over our church and inspire us in our social action and special projects. In 2014 we raised over 300 pounds of food and toiletries for the homeless through Good Samaritans of Garland. It is our most popular and most successful fundraiser, and anyone may participate.
Hosted by members of the Veritan faith. Energized and diverse, many young adults. Service includes group music, solo performances, communal ritual, meditations, ancient storytelling, and breaking of hot bread. The Godheads of mythology are celebrated, though worshipers of all walks of life attend and enjoy. Children are welcome.
A High Court is an elaborate and engaging ritual of much larger proportions than what you would find on a Sunday. It is focused on one of the Six Gods in Verity, and the following feast is planned rather than potluck style. There is music, lots of color, and the Speakers tend to have a fun twist planned for the evening. Check out the Google Calendar for updates on High Court details!
A curriculum supported by the Unitarian Universalist Association, Our Whole Lives (OWL) is both informative and discussion-based. It studies the journey of sexuality: what we've experienced (or not), myths we've heard, and answers to questions like "Am I normal?" and "Is this safe?" Ages 18 - 35, all orientations and gender identities, come learn and choose your own level of involvement. There will be a male and a female facilitator within this age group.
Sacred Journey is coordinating with outside covens to bring you celebrations of the Sabbats, the 8 neo-pagan holidays as represented by the Wheel of the Year. The most commonly recognized Sabbats are as follows: Midwinter (Yule), the Winter Solstice in December; Imbolc in February to mark the first stirrings of Spring; the Spring equinox Ostara; Beltane (May Day), traditionally the first day of Summer in Ireland; Midsummer or Litha (Summer Solstice); Lamas or Lughnasadh (the first harvest); the Autumn Equinox Mabon; and finally Samhain (pronounced Sah-win), the last harvest celebration and the end of the old year, also known as All Souls Night. Keep an eye on our Google Calendar for who we will have join us and when! Sabbats are joyous occasions to experience.
An upbeat, community-centric percussion jam session, drum jam is open to all levels of experience, as well as dancers and spinners. We provide some drums, though you are welcome to bring your own! As of now this meetup is every other month.
Peaceful and contemplative, service more consistent structure. Service includes the invoking of the elements and patron deities, meditations, communal ritual, focusing on various ancient traditions and the guest speaking of local experts. Children are welcome.
The Full Moon Celebration is an enchanting experience, a celebration of life, the human experience and nature. The full moon is welcome to all and there is no invitation needed. Sometimes it is indoors, sometimes out. There is a potluck feast and drumming to follow. Sacred Journey is searching for a variety of groups to come in and present the Moons.
